This report is guided by the firm belief that most of the conflicts of interest and environmental threats expressed on the Wye can be appreciably reduced by effective management and planning, and that this can only be achieved by means of an overall strategy which considers the Wye as a whole. Following consideration by the relevant planning and management authorities and consultation with interested bodies, it is intended that the report will form the basis for the development of an agreed management strategy. This will provide the project's sponsors with a firm framework for directing future management action. The Wye Project was set up principally because of the unease by public agencies which had planning and management responsibilities for the river and its corridor. On the one hand it is a superb river with scenery second to none and with wildlife and fishery resources of great value, and on the other hand it has more and more people wishing to visit the valley and enjoy those qualities.
