The River Severn Upper Reaches Catchment Management Plan (CMP) Action Plan, published in June 1995, set out a five year programme of work to be undertaken to protect and enhance the water environment over the next five years. This second Annual Review of the plan reports on progress made by the Environment Agency and others since July 1996. This second year of the Action Plan has seen good progress made towards protecting and improving the water quality, water resources and natural habitat in the catchment. Of the 69 actions planned for the 1996 - 1997 year, including ongoing actions, progress has been made on 68, of which 2 were completed, and 6 additional actions were brought forward and started. Many of the actions have involved organisations working in collaboration with others. The catchment of the upper reaches of the River Severn is predominantly rural in character, and is an area known for its attractive upland landscape and great natural beauty. - Most rivers in the catchment support high class fisheries and provide a diversity of habitats for a wide range of flora and fauna.
