Title: Lower Bristol Avon catchment management plan : first annual review
Author: Environment Agency South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This is the First Annual Review of the Lower Bristol Action Plan which was published in March 1996. It introduces the Environment Agency, summarizes progress made with Actions and introduces several new Actions. An important part of the CMP process is to monitor the Action Plan to ensure that targets and actions are achieved and that the plan continues to address relevant and significant issues within the catchment. This report summarizes the progress made since the publication of the Action Plan in 1996. Since 1 September 1996 we have taken over the lead role from the Police in passing flood warnings to people who are at risk, so that they can take action to protect themselves and their properties. Where there is a known risk that flooding could occur from the main rivers flood warnings will be issued for the area affected.
