The River Mease is a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) due to the importance of the species and habitats it supports.
Survey work by the Environment Agency revealed that the quality of the water in the river was poor, mainly due to high phosphorous levels.
South Derbyshire District Council, working in partnership with the River Mease Programme Board has published an updated Developer Contributions Strategy (DCS2) for a consultation period which ends at 5pm on Friday 29 January 2016.
The DCS2 follows the publication of the Water Quality Management Plan for the River Mease and once adopted will enable South Derbyshire District Council to continue to allow developments within the river catchment provided a financial contribution is made in line with the DCS2.
Any comments received on the DCS2 will be considered by the River Mease Programme Board before the respective planning authorities in the catchment area are asked to adopt the document.
