Title: Brent and Crane catchment management plan : consultation report : December 1995
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
This is a draft catchment vision which will be developed further after the consultation process. The urbanised nature of the Brent and Crane catchments dictates the problems and issues that affect the water environment. Whilst it is unlikely that the balance of land uses will change significantly, future land use management will provide opportunities to enhance the water environment. At present both the Brent and Crane catchments have predominately poor and fair water quality respectively which affects the ecological and recreational benefit that can be gained from the rivers, streams and canals. It is therefore essential that in order to breathe new life into the catchments, water quality issues should take the highest priority and form the key objective for the catchments. In trying to solve the problems within the catchments the NRA must have the full support of the community. Without educating and informing the public of our ideas for future management, little practical benefit may ever be achieved.
