Title: Water resources in Anglia : a sustainable strategy for secure water supplies and a better water environment
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
In 1993 the NRA published its Water Resources Strategy. This is not to be confused with the National Water Resource Development Strategy (see below). It is a high level policy document which sets out the legal and institutional frameworks and establishes 66 separate policy statements whereby the NRA will achieve its principal aim to manage water resources to achieve the right balance between the needs of the environment and those of the abstractors. This strategy is produced by the Anglian Region of the NRA. The NRA does not supply water (that is done by the Water Undertakers), nor control development (that is done by the Planning Authorities). The NRAs role is to manage water resources in such a way as to meet all reasonable needs, both of the environment and of the people. This Strategy is a framework within which all concerned can operate to achieve that aim - Water Companies, industry, farmers, environmental interests, planning authorities and the NRA itself.
