      Hi EA people

      I have been asked to download the GIS data for the catchment areas for our planning dept to use, normally your data is really easy to find, in this case I dont seem to be able to find where i can download the shp files

      Can you help?

      Good afternoon.
      Is the Catchment Data Explorer still being updated with status reports or is it now a platform for management plans?
