The Humber Estuary Management Strategy has been prepared in response to guidance by the Department of the Environment and adopts a partnership approach to problemsolving. It is a non-statutory process which is intended to guide policy an decision-makers in managing the Estuary in a way which will not prejudice the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. During the preparation of this Strategy there has been extensive consultation with a-wide cross section of Statutory bodies, Ports and Industry, and the Voluntary Sector. This Strategy document was preceded by the production of a series of Topic Papers which examined the issues as identified by the consultees, and the publication of a Consultation Draft which expressed the issues identified by the Topic Papers and remains an important point of reference for the Strategy. The consultation process has led to the identification of Key Issues and a series of related Objectives which provide the guidance for co-ordinated strategic planning around the Estuary and for interested parties who may wish to expand existing, or establish new, enterprises in the area. This document should be used in conjunction with the existing planning and legislative framework which form the basis for decision-taking.
