Title: Catchment management planning guidelines : August 1993
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The water environment is increasingly becoming a focus for a variety of passive and (inter) active uses and activities. As Guardians of the Water Environment, the NRA are responsible for examining the interaction between such activities/uses and the water/associated land environment, reconciling any conflicts that may arise, and generally protecting and improving the water environment. It is proposed that the most effective and efficient approach to this management and planning process is through the production of a Catchment Management Plan (CMP). The purpose of these guidelines is to provide those involved in preparing CMPs with a framework within which the principles of catchment management planning can be expressed, ensuring consistency in approach and efficiency in their preparation. These guidelines are not intended to be overly prescriptive and detailed, but are designed to allow the character and needs of individual catchments to be catered for, ensuring the continued evolution of the process.
