Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
LEAPs are non-statutory action plans based on river catchments that help to fulfil the Environment Agencys principal aim of contributing to sustainable development through integrated environmental management and improvement. LEAPs take a long-term view of local environments and set out a five-year plan of action for solving local issues. The purpose of a LEAP as a planning tool means that the plan is not designed to reflect fully the Agencys routine activities within the plan area. The Agencys everyday work commits substantial resources to managing the environment including extensive monitoring and survey operations. It is also important to remember that the Agency is not responsible for regulating every aspect of the environment and for certain other issues other organisations are primarily responsible. This LEAP sets out a programme of action which the Environment Agency and partner organisations intend to carry out over the next five years in order to protect and enhance the local environment of the Kent Area. As with all such programmes, funding for these actions will be subject to availability and to changes in priority, with the Agency and externally, both locally and nationally.
