The Planning for the Natural Environment & Water Toolkit (PNEWT) supports Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) in Greater Manchester and beyond to maximise positive impacts on the water environment through the development process. It focuses on the delivery of River Basin Management Plan (RBMP) objectives and the broader aims of the Water Environment (England & Wales) Regulations 2017, previously the Water Framework Directive.

The toolkit is organised into two sections, covering Policy Development and Development Management and provides checklists, resources and case studies to support LPAs to deliver RBMP objectives in their area.
