Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
Catchment planning is a process which balances society's need for development with the need to conserve and enhance the river environment. It is the result of a coordinating approach by the Technical Services Sector of the NRA Thames Region to ensure an efficient and effective response to flood defence and land drainage problems within river catchments. River Catchment Plans produced during the process will set out a framework for managing the flood defence and land drainage aspects of individual river systems. This River Stort Evaluation Report presents a review of available information on the Stort 'catchment against a check-list of 16 'principal functions' and 17 'catchment attributes'.
