Title: River Arun catchment management plan : consultation report
Author: National Rivers Authority Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Plan considers the catchments of the River Arun, formerly known as the Tarant, and West Sussex coastal streams, including the River Ems, River Lavant, Chichester and Pagham Harbours. In total the area comprises the south western quadrant of the Weald with its impermeable Clays and Sandstone hills, the Sussex Chalk downland west of the Adur gap and the coastal plain from Lancing to the Hampshire boundary. As users of the catchment, the NRA wants the public and interested parties to contribute to the CMP and so the production of each Plan has two separate phases. Phase 1, the Consultation Report is produced after extensive internal discussion and study. It identifies the legitimate and realistic management of the catchment and includes a draft outline of work required to remedy any identified problem. The Plan is distributed to the public as part of a wide ranging consultation procedure. Phase 2, the Action Plan is produced after comments received on the Consultation Plan have been considered and presents the NRA's Action Plan for the future management of the catchment. The Action Plan details the nature of the work required, the cost, timescale and responsible organisations.
