Author: Environment Agency Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
This catchment plan is about the River Tame, its tributaries and the land which drains to it. It includes most of the West Midlands conurbation (Birmingham, Sandwell, Walsall and parts of Wolverhampton, Solihull and Dudley) and areas of Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Leicestershire. The map on the fold-out cover shows the main features of the catchment. Tributaries on the upper reaches of the River Tame include the River Rea and the Hockley, Plants, Darlaston, Ford and Tipton Brooks. On the lower reaches, the tributaries include the Black/Bourne Brook, the River Anker and the River Sence. The catchment also includes the Birmingham Canal Navigation and the Birmingham and Fazeley, Coventry and Ashby Canals. A catchment plan for the Rivers Blythe, Cole and Bourne was produced in 1994. The Action Plan for the Tame catchment is the second stage in the Tame catchment management plan process. The implementation of this Action Plan will be closely monitored. The first Annual Review will be published in 14 months time, which will detail the progress that has been made.
