The Hull and East Riding LEAP First Annual review reports on the progress made during the last year, against LEAP actions. The actions published in the LEAP are supplemental to our everyday work on monitoring, surveying and regulating to protect the environment. Some of the key achievements on our everyday work include: i) A Water Level Management Plan and draft conservation strategy was produced for the River Hull Headwaters, an important Site of Special Scientific Interest. ii) Improvements in air quality have been achieved as a result of a thermox unit successfully commissioned by BP. Significant reductions (of at least 85%) in the emissions in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are anticipated to result from this system. kX. iii) The Region's first successful prosecution under Section 30 of Salmon an Freshwater Fisheries Act was taken against Framlingham Fisheries for the illegal introduction of fish. iv) The Area has made significant progress towards establishing a Customer Service Centre, operating from April 1999, which will provide an integrated response to customers needs with regard to issuing consents and permits. In addition the review also seeks to look forward and identify future priorities, which it must be will be influenced by the following: i) Implementing action resulting from lessons learned from flooding outside the area during 1998 (an action plan was developed in November 1998). ii) Implementing over the next two to three years, new regulatory duties resulting from European Directives, Government policies and Agency developments. iii) Contributions to the comprehensive reviews of abstraction licensing and fisheries legislation.
