  1. 1. Informing second cycle River Basin Management Plans Richard Handley Head Office Catchment Management 22 November 2013 (Fountains Abbey) Catchment Based Approach Conference UNCLASSIFIED 1
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. 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
  4. 4. 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
  5. 5. 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’
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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 !   Complement partner’s Catchment Plans !   Catchment Plans will be measures in the RBMP !   Web-based ‘Linked-data’ Catchment data explorer !   Aiming first release for draft plan publication
  8. 8. Catchment summaries UNCLASSIFIED 8
  9. 9. 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 9
  10. 10. 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
  11. 11. 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 RBMPs but all aspects of managing water (i.e. developing consensus and delivering action) - a long term ‘adaptive’ process and should not be constrained by plan production !   Thank You
