Administratively the Eastern Rother catchment is divided almost equally between Kent and East Sussex. It lies in the south west corner of the Agencys Kent Area and is the third largest catchment in the area, with a land area of 970 km2. The catchment has the lowest population density in the Kent Area (approximately 175 km2). This is due to its rural nature with predominantly mixed arable and sheep farming. With rainfall averaging 754mm per year there are good conditions to sustain arable fanning. The industry in the catchment is found predominantly along the Rother mainly between Rye and Rye Harbour. The Eastern Rother LEAP Consultation Draft concentrates on the prioritisation of environmental issues relevant to the Agency and the identification of possible options for action necessary to restore/improve the local environment. This document is the main focus for public consultation. The issues and options for action put forward to address those issues have been structured around the Agency's nine environmental concerns, which aim to protect and enhance the environment in an integrated way and contribute towards the goal of sustainable development.
