The Don Network Plan (2012)

In March 2011, the Environment Minister and DEFRA commissioned a range of 25 “Catchment Pilots” across the country to investigate and report on ways to co-ordinate catchment planning to help achieve the Water Framework Directive (WFD). The Don Network was the pilot set up for our catchment, with which DCRT was one of the stakeholders consulted.

Loxley Consultation

As part of our Loxley feasibility study we organised a consultation meeting with owners, interested parties and local residents. We sent out over 150 letters to the people in the local community as well as inviting community groups, local & parish councils.

We had a good attendance at the Consultation Meeting held on 15th January with lots of positive responses from interested parties. We have responses to the questions asked on the night which can be found here.

Loxley Reports

As a result of our investigations in to fish passage on the Loxley we commissioned an archaeological report (Heritage Statement) which is available here.

We also commissioned a Feasibility Study which will be available upon completion.
