Author: Environment Agency Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
This report highlights the specific environmental issues in the Idle and Tome area. The issues are either under the Environment Agencys remit or can be addressed through partnerships. We have made suggestions on how the issues can be tackled. The Idle and Torne LEAP area covers 1307 square kilometres, including part of the counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, South Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. Major settlements in the plan area include Sutton-in-Ashfield, Mansfield, Worksop, East Retford, Crowle, Hatfield and parts of the suburbs of Doncaster and Rotherham. The population of the plan area is approximately 625,000 people. In terms of transport links, the area is well served by the road network. The Ml runs close to the western edge of the area, with the A614, the A1 (M), and the M18 running north/south, and the Ml 80 running east/west. Railways serving the area include the east coast main line which links East Retford with Doncaster, the Sheffield-Worksop-East Retford line and the reinstated Robin Hood Line which links Nottingham and Worksop via Mansfield.
