Catchment management planning aims to create a consistent framework within which all the NRA's functions and responsibilities can be applied in a coordinated manner within a particular catchment area. It tries to reconcile any conflicts that may arise, and to improve the water environment for the benefit of future generations in line with the principles of sustainable development. During this planning process, the current state of the water environment and its associated uses are analysed and compared with appropriate standards. Where these standards are not being met or are likely to be affected in the future, issues are established together with options for their resolution. These are presented in a table at the end of this brochure. The River Ancholme Catchment is located in the administrative counties of North Lincolnshire and South Humberside and covers an area o f 618 square kilometres. The sub catchment of the Winterton Beck has been included in the Plan area.
