  • 1. Informing second cycle River Basin Management Plans Paul Bryson EA Senior Advisor (catchment management) Catchment Based Approach Partnerships f or Action
  • 2. Informing second cycle River Basin Management Plans Paul Bryson Senior Advisor (National Head Office) 05 November 2013 (London) Catchment Based Approach Conference UNCLASSIFIED 2
  • 3. Presentation Content 15 min. introduction to ‘Informing 2nd cycle RBMPs’: Why What How When Summing up
  • 4. Why feed into River Basin Management Planning? Create a statutory framework (particularly water body objectives) to direct local opportunities for improvement Inform a strategic approach to water management across catchments (- better outcomes and benefits) Engage with stakeholders who are less well represented at catchment level We need Catchment Groups to feed into RBMP and vice versa – You (hosts and coordinators) are pivotal to this.
  • 5. What information would be helpful (1) Evidence on: Risks and Impacts Reasons For Failure Effectiveness of measures/mechanisms (e.g. voluntary advice versus regulatory campaigns) Costs and Benefits of measures and mechanisms
  • 6. What information would be helpful (2) Views on: Objectives, relative priorities and outcomes (levels of ambition) Broadland Partnership (Anglian) Courtesy of Rory Sanderson Opportunities for future major re-development to co-deliver benefit Alternative funding opportunities (e.g. LEPs, EU funds) Gather any new actions into the RBMPs
  • 7. How the information can be provided Providing evidence on: Classification – specific data requirements Reasons For Failure & Risk Assessment – more flexible Measure Cost-Effectiveness & Benefits – more flexible Engage with local Agency Catchment Coordinators to agree with partners what the information means As a minimum feed in views through the statutory 6 month consultations (the earlier the better) Over time we plan to develop ‘data standards and protocols’
  • 8. When do we need this information? 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 1st cycle plan implementation Challenges & Choices 2nd cycle Planning Draft Plan Final Plan 2nd cycle plan implementation Incremental implementation of a Catchment Based Approach
  • 9. Proposed Approach to Draft RBMPs Centrally compiled RBD plans Strategic overview and direction Statutory requirements Based on local data (including catchment summaries) Shaping with Liaison Panels continues Catchment Summaries Regionally produced around core information template Discuss and shape locally – role for partnership groups Will complement partner’s Catchment Plans (these will be measures in the RBMP) Web-based Catchment data explorer Aiming first release for draft plan publication
  • 10. Catchment summaries UNCLASSIFIED 10
  • 11. Overview of Proposed approach River Basin District Management plan Catchment Planning System Catchment Summaries Other statutory plans (e.g. Flood) Partnership Activities & Plans Catchment data explorer (if available) Water body data UNCLASSIFIED 11
  • 12. Next Steps We are finalising the approach to draft RBMPs (February 2014) The National Practitioner Group are setting up: Training events from February 2014 (in development) Data sharing systems (in development) linked to Environment Agency data management work Catchment Explorer We encourage you to engage locally with catchment coordinators to determine how you can feed into RBMPs
  • 13. Summary points We need Catchment Groups to feed into RBMP (and vice versa) You (hosts and catchment coordinators) have a pivotal role in this The ability of Partnership Groups to feed in will vary As a minimum help shape the catchment summaries and engage in RBMP consultations e.g. Challenges & Choices and draft RBMPs Catchment Based Approach is not just about producing RPMPs but all aspects of managing water (i.e. developing consensus and delivering action) This is a long term ‘adaptive’ process and should not be constrained by ‘plan’ production
