Title: River Kennet catchment management plan : third annual review (August 1996 - August 1997)
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
The publication of the River Kennet Catchment Management plans Final Report in April 1994 greatly assisted in identifying the issues that we needed to consider, and respond to, in order to protect and improve the water environment. Since then, we have annually reported on the progress of the Action Plan contained in the Final Report. This third Annual Review summarises the Agencys and in some cases other organisations' progress on actions set out in the Action Plan. The Axford Public Inquiry was the biggest single issue in terms of time and commitment for the Agency in the catchment during 1996 and a decision on the varied licence is still awaited. The Agency also successfully prosecuted some companies for abstracting water without a licence or for discharging chemicals into the river leading to fish kills. A total of 83 actions were identified in the Final Report of the Kennet Catchment Management Plan. Of these actions 71 have been successfully completed or are on target for completion, 8 are behind target and 4 are no longer relevant. 2 new actions have been added.
