This Environmental Overview has been prepared to provide supporting information to the Eastern Rother Area Local Environment Agency Plan (LEAP) for the next five years. It is a factual description and analysis of the Eastern Rother environment and the stresses and strains that are acting upon it. A series of issues has been developed from this analysis and these issues have been carried forward into the separate LEAP Consultation Draft. This allows consideration by the Agency, its partners and those individuals and organisations generally interested in the local environment so that the relative importance of local concerns can be identified. After this consultation the final Action Plan is prepared to provide a five year programme for addressing these issues. The Overview has been prepared in the context of the Agencys overall aim to protect and enhance the whole environment, thus contributing to sustainable development. The term sustainable development is most commonly taken to mean development that meets the needs o f the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
