Document Type: Monograph
The Water Act 1989 established the National Rivers Authority as the Guardian of the Water Environment, a non departmental public body with responsibility for regulating and managing water resources, water quality in coastal and inland waters, flood defence, salmon and freshwater fisheries, water recreation and, in some areas, navigation. A duty laid on the NRA was to further conservation of the natural environment, seeking opportunities for enhancement wherever possible. This document introduces the concept of catchment planning and details the process of catchment planning. An introduction to the Isle of Wight catchment is given, as well as an interaction with land use planning. Catchment statistics, issues, management proposals and an action programme are all contained within.
