This Licensing Strategy sets out how water resources are managed in the Tyne catchment. It provides information about where water is available for further abstraction and an indication of how reliable a new abstraction licence may be. It supersedes the Tyne Catchment Abstraction Management Strategy (CAMS) issued in March 2005.
