Title: Blackwater River Catchment Management Plan : Consultation Draft
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: April 1992
This Draft Catchment Management Plan is a step towards achieving that goal for the Blackwater River catchment. As a vehicle for consultation it will provide a means of seeking a consensus on the way ahead and as a planning document it will be a means of seeking commitment from all parties to realising the environmental potential of the catchment. The catchment is one of contrasts. On its western side the Whitewater and Hart Rivers drain a largely undeveloped catchment (apart, from the towns of Fleet and Hook) , whilst on the eastern side the Blackwater River and Cove Brook drain a heavily urbanised area comprising the towns of Aldershot, Farnborough, Camberley, Sandhurst and Yateley. The crescent of intensive development within the Blackwater valley is a result of a number of influences including: the development of military training facilities in the last century; ease of access by rail to central London; and, inclusion of the area within a sub-region of the south-east of England identified for major growth from the late 1950's to the mid 1980s.
