This LEAP has been produced after public consultation following the launch of the Consultation Draft in July 1999. We are grateful to those people who responded to the draft document. Their comments, and the prioritisation carried out by the Area Environment Group (AEG) have enabled us to evaluate the issues raised in the original report and refine them into an action plan. This plan, or LEAP, sets out the work that the Agency intends to carry out in the catchment in partnership with others over the next 5 years. The Environment Agency will assess our progress against the actions annually and when new challenges to the local environment arise we will include them in the annual review process where appropriate. The East Hampshire LEAP sets out a programme of actions which the Agency and partner organisations aim to carry out over the next five years in order to protect and enhance the local environment of the East Hampshire catchments. As with all such programmes, funding for these actions will be subject to availability and to changes in priority, within the Agency and externally, both locally and nationally.The East Hampshire LEAP area is defined as the surface catchments of the Rivers Meon, Hamble and Wallington (in addition to several smaller watercourses). It extends from the Hamble estuary in the west to Emsworth and Hayling Island in the east, and incorporates Portsmouth Harbour, Langstone- Harbour and part of Chichester Harbour. The East Hampshire LEAP area falls entirely within the County of Hampshire. The majority of the area lies within the overall administrative control of Hampshire County Council and Portsmouth City Council.
