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.
The council adopted an updated Developer Contribution Strategy (DCS2) on 29 September 2016. DCS2 is attached to this page.
The DCS2 follows the publication of the Water Quality Management Plan for the River Mease and enables South Derbyshire District Council to continue to allow developments within the river catchment provided a financial contribution is made in line with the DCS2.
DCS1 is attached to this page. DCS1 is now superseded by DCS2.
