Title: Environmental planning issues in the North Wessex area
Author: Environment Agency North Wessex Area
Document Type: Monograph
Planning authorities and the Environment Agency have a common purpose in seeking a greater contribution to sustainability from the way that development needs are met and the environment is managed. This overarching objective can be better served by greater partnership. A partnership requires each party to understand the role of the other and to have confidence in what it does. Planning authorities and the Environment Agency need to exchange information and views about the choices that have to be made in planning, particularly in making development plans. This document and the maps that accompany it are intended to help this dialogue take place. The document explains how the Agency believes that the environmental issues it deals with affect the matters planning authorities deal with, and how they can best be taken into account. Though a lot of information is provided by the document and the maps, the document is intended as an invitation to seek the Agency's involvement rather than as a substitute for discussion.
