It represents the first stage in the LEAP process for the Roch/lrk/Medlock area and is published as part of a major consultation process. This plan, and the issues raised within it, address problems relating to the Agency's areas of responsibility, which are, the regulation of waste, releases to air from some industrial processes and safeguarding, and where possible improving, the water environment, which we are unable to solve within our daily activities. Whilst the plan will be the focus for the Agency's actions, partnerships, influencing and involvement of the public and business~communities7 wiirBe essential to secure success. It should be recognised that this is one of many plans created by various bodies which all seek to improve the environment and its management within this area. The plan is aimed to identify local environmental issues, whilst recognising the part other plans and organisations play and seeking to improve the environment. It will play its part in ensuring environmental problems in the future will be tackled in an integrated way in order to optimise benefit for the local environment.
