Title: Hampshire Avon : plan from April 2000 to March 2005
Author: Environment Agency South Wessex Region
Document Type: Monograph
The area covered by this LEAP comprises the entire catchment of the Hampshire Avon and all its tributaries. Towards the coast the river meets the Dorset Stour at Christchurch Harbour; we published a LEAP for the Dorset Stour in 1998. The River Mude also drains to the Harbour. Despite its name the Hampshire Avon LEAP falls within three counties; Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire. These County Planning Authorities are responsible for strategic development, and minerals and waste planning. The District Councils responsible for local planning and environmental health are East Dorset, Kennet, New Forest, Salisbury, Test Valley and West Wiltshire, and Christchurch Borough Council. The other significant waterway is the Kennet and Avon Canal, lying approximately east-west across the head of the catchment and is chiefly the responsibility of the British Waterways Board.
