This Action Plan outlines the strategy for activity that the Agency intends to undertake in partnership with others in the Swale, Ure and Ouse area during the next five years. Within this plan, a number of actions have been accepted by the Agency and other organisations. The area contained within the Swale, Ure and Ouse Local Environment Agency Plan (LEAP) is a geographically diverse area including the protected uplands of two National Parks, rural countryside, the Port of Selby and the historical city of York. This diversity in landscape and heritage attracts many visitors to the area each year, whether this be for recreational activities in the national parks or simply to enjoy the pleasures of the city of York. Most of the area is rural, with the population and industry being concentrated around York and Selby in the south. The Local Environment Agency Action Plan includes: a final vision for the Swale, Ure and Ouse area; a policy framework based on identified issues for the management of the environment over a five year period; and costed action plans to address identified issues. The Environment Agency is one of many organisations which protect the fragile and important Swale, Ure and Ouse area.
