Title: Conservation and recreation: the Wye challenge: volume 1: report of the River Wye project
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The Wye Project was set up in 1990 by a partnership of public bodies, each with an interest in the management of the River Wye. Its main objective is to prepare a strategy for managing sport and recreation on the River Wye, which also recognises its importance for nature conservation. The project covers the full length of the Wye and relates to the river itself, its banks and interests associated with the river. This report has been prepared for two reasons: to provide the sponsors of the Wye Project with information to enable them to develop a detailed management strategy for the river; and to enable other organisations and individuals with an interest in the river to have an input into the final strategy. Comments are being sought on the report's recommendations. A summary of this report has been published and distributed to relevant organisations. A set of technical appendices accompanies this report.
