Title: Weaver/Dane local environment agency plan : consulation report summary : October 1997
Author: Environment Agency North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This document is a summary of the Consultation report of the Weaver/Dane LEAP. The Weaver/Dane LEAP area is defined by the rainfall catchment of the River Weaver and the River Dane and covers 1423km2. The Weaver rises to the east of the Peckforton Hills and flows 88 kilometres from its source to its confluence with the Manchester Ship Canal and Mersey Estuary, just north of Frodsham. Its main tributaries are the River Dane, which joins the Weaver in the centre of Northwich and the River Wheelock which joins the River Dane in Middlewich. The production of a LEAP is a two stage process. The first stage is the production of a Consultation Report and an open consultation period, of which this summary forms a part. The second stage is the production of the Action Plan, which follows the consultation period. The Action Plan includes a programme of action to be undertaken by the Agency and other groups in the area over the next five years. The third stage is the implementation of the Action Plan will be monitored, and annual reports produced. A full review of the area will be made at the end of the five year plan period.
