The Derwent Local Environment Agency Plan will form one of several plans to be produced by the North East Region of the Environment Agency. The publication of this consultation report marks the start of a 3 month period of formal consultation enabling external organisations and the general public to work with us in planning the future of the environment of the Derwent. It describes the area, reviews the state of the local environment and identifies the uses and issues which need to be addressed and the proposals for action to address them. The purpose of the consultation phase is to: establish the current state o f the local environment; obtain views on the issues facing the environment; begin the process of identifying and implementing an Action Plan. The Derwent area is primarily rural with an area of 2057km2 covering one - tenth of Yorkshire. The River Derwent is one of the few largely undisturbed lowland rivers in England and Wales. There are over 60 Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) within the area plus three National Nature Reserves (NNR) and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
