Title: Blythe/Cole/Bourne Catchment Management Plan Final Plan July 1994
Author: National Rivers Authority Severn-Trent Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Blythe/Cole/Bourne Catchment covers part of the West Midlands conurbation and a large part of the Birmingham Green Belt, south and east of the city. The Blythe and the Bourne are predominantly rural rivers and flow through attractive countryside, while the Cole, the major tributary of the Blythe, passes through built up areas in south Birmingham. The Blythe and the Cole rise in the south west corner of the Catchment and flow in a north easterly direction. The Bourne rises in the east and flows in a westerly direction. The Blythe and the Cole converge north of Coleshill and flow into the River Tame. The Bourne joins the Tame 0.4 Km downstream of the Blythe/Tame confluence. This report describes the implementation of the plan, which is based around the 23 key issues.
