Title: Striking the right balance : Somerset Levels and Moors water level management strategy review
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: review public consultation
The Environment Agency has major flood defence, conservation and other responsibilities in the Levels and Moors. It is seeking to review and update the strategy, with other interested parties, in the light of experience and changed circumstances. A central part of this review will be a period of extensive public consultation. This leaflet spells out the process. The Somerset Levels and Moors form one of Britain's largest and best surviving wetlands. The area consists of 60,728 hectares (150,060 acres) of low-lying land which drains to the Severn Estuary. In 1991 an attempt was made to overcome these difficulties when a strategy for water level management and nature conservation was published. This has led to advances but differences still impede progress.
