This report is the consultation report of West Somerset rivers LEAP. Catchment Planning occurs in three stages, the Consultation Report, the Action Plan and Annual Reviews. The Consultation Report integrates all aspects of the water environment over a defined geographical area, called a catchment. The uses of the catchment are explained; problems and issues are identified, with possible options to resolve them. This LEAP Plan Area starts at Foreland Point in the west and extends east to Hinkley Point, covering an area of approximately 320 km2. A large part of the catchment lies within Exmoor National Park; this area is also designated an environmentally Sensitive Area. The catchment includes all the rivers and streams that drain to the north coast: the Hawkcombe Stream, Horner Water, River Aller, River Avill, Pill River, Washford River, Doniford Stream and Kitve Stream.
