Title: Broadland rivers : draft LEAP
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
The Environment Agency is a major environmental protection organisation responsible for regulating waste disposal to land, industrial releases to air and for safeguarding and improving the natural water environment. Our overall aim of protecting and enhancing the environment, as a whole, contributes to the world-wide environmental goal of sustainable development. We are committed to a programme of Local Environment Agency Plans (LEAPs) in order to produce a local agenda of integrated action for environmental improvements. LEAPs also allow us to deploy our resources to the best effect and optimise the benefit for the local environment. The Broadland Rivers Draft LEAP is the fourth LEAP consultation document produced by Eastern Area, but follows new guidance recently implemented, which explains the somewhat different layout to the document. This report provides a framework for consultation and a means of seeking commitment from those involved, to realise the full environmental potential o f the Broadland Rivers area. A large proportion of this area is recognised internationally as being environmentally important and the tidal reaches of the rivers form one of Europe’s most important lowland wetlands.
