Title: Axe and Lim : annual review : March 2002
Author: Environment Agency South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This is the First Annual Review of the Axe an Lim LEAP Action Plan. It summarises progress made with actions and should be read in conjunction with the LEAP Action Plan which was produced in November 2000. The Axe an Lim LEAP aims to promote integrated environmental management in the area surrounding the River Axe and the River Lim. It seeks to develop partnerships with a wide range of organisations and individuals who have a role to play in the management of the area. It is vital that the needs of all aspects of the area, including flora and fauna, are balanced to ensure continued protection of these precious assets. Since the publication of the Axe an Lim LEAP Action Plan in November 2000 we have made good progress on the actions. We have already completed 5% of the actions published in the plan and work is being undertaken on a further 66%, many through collaborative projects with other organisations. However, this leaves 29% of actions which we have not yet been able to progress. We will be looking at ways in which these can be progressed over the next year. Some of the work due to be carried out over the past year has been delayed due to the outbreak of foot and mouth. Survey work which was due to be completed last year will new be carried out during 2002.
