Author: National Rivers Authority South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Action Plan outlines how the NRA and other organisations plan to tackle issues that affect the water environment in the Poole Harbour catchment. The Issues listed in this Action Plan were first identified in the Poole Harbour an Purbeck Catchment Management Plan Consultation Report, published in November 1995. The Poole Harbour an Purbeck Catchment is an area of high amenity and ecological importance, greatly valued by locals and visitors alike. The Harbour, with its variety of wetlands, and the Purbeck coast are protected by a number of conservation designations. The Harbour with its sheltered waters and the Purbeck coast with its exceptional bathing beaches make an important contribution to the local economy through recreation and tourism. Poole town is located on the northern shores of the Harbour, and includes the commercial port.
