Title: Bristol Avon : consultation draft : February 1999
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
The Environment Agency has a wide range of duties and powers relating to different aspects of environmental management. At the heart of sustainable development is the integration of human needs and the environment within which we live. Indeed the creation of the Agency itself was in part a recognition of the need to take a more integrated and longer-term view of environmental management at a national level. We therefore have to reflect this in the way we work and in the decisions we make. The Bristol Avon Local Environment Agency Plans (LEAPs) help us to identify and assess, prioritise and solve those local environmental issues within our remit and related to our functions, taking into account the views of our local customers. As a result LEAPs allow us to deploy our resources to best effect and optimise benefit for the local environment.
