Workshop aim: to ensure the views of people with an interest in fisheries and conservation in the Loddon catchment are represented in an agreed integrated action plan. This plan may be used for a variety of purposes from linking Water Framework Directive actions, development of site fisheries management plans to attracting funds required to deliver larger scale or cumulative fisheries and conservation projects.
- raise awareness of WFD issues in the Loddon catchment
- plot issues at a location (s) on large scale maps of waters in the Loddon catchment (stillwaters, rivers and streams, Basingstoke Canal)
- cluster issues into generic problems or opportunities e.g. diffuse pollution or habitat degradation
- identify WFD issues and Loddon Consultative issues
- prioritise actions into short, medium and long term
- provide the platform for the draft LFCAP
LFCAP benefits – why take part?
