Author: National Rivers Authority South Western Region
Document Type: Monograph
The River Torridge Catchment is predominantly rural in character providing a valued water environment and natural resource for the 33,300 people who live in the catchment and many others who work in or visit the area. The River Torridge rises near the north-west coast of Devon and flows at first south-eastwards through sparsely populated agricultural areas. The Consultation Report was distributed to industry, local authorities, environmental groups, sport and recreation groups and the public. The consultation aimed to obtain agreement on the catchment uses; consensus on the environmental objectives and standards required; and detailed comment on the issues and options in the report. A two month consultation period followed. One hundred and twenty four Consultation Reports and a large number of leaflets were sent out during the consultation period. In total, thirty one consultation responses were received. All the responses received have been considered and have provided an invaluable contribution to the formulation of this Final Report.
