Title: River Derwent catchment management plan : consultation report
Author: National Rivers Authority Northumbria and Yorkshire Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Derwent Catchment Management Plan is the second of 17 to be undertaken in the Northumbria and Yorkshire Region. The other catchments are scheduled to be completed over the next two years. This large and varied, mainly rural catchment is of international and national importance for wildlife conservation and has a high landscape value. A considerable proportion of the catchment lies within the North York Moors National Park. The NRA places prime importance on the protection and improvement to the already predominantly high quality of the water environment of this catchment. The publication of this consultation report marks the start of a three month period of formal consultation enabling external organisations and the general public to work with the NRA in planning the future of the water environment of the Derwent Catchment. This report describes the catchment, reviews the state of the water environment and identifies the uses and issues which need to be addressed. It does not define in detail the action plans nor the guiding policy objectives to tackle the key issues for the water environment.
