The Environment Agency is launching a consultation on 24th October seeking views on the challenges our waters face and the choices we all need to make to improve and protect this precious resource.
The responses to this statutory consultation will help shape the future approach to the management of the water environment and will be used to inform the update of the existing river basin management plans in 2021.
The 'Challenges and Choices' consultation seeks views on:
- the challenges that threaten the water environment
- how we can work together to manage our waters
- and who should pay
We invite you to submit your views to us via the link to the consultation below: https://consult.environment-agency.gov.uk/environment-and-business/challenges-andchoices. The closing date for receipt of your comments is 24th April 2020.

In the past few weeks, I've seen a noticeable increase in the amount of letters I've been receiving about the local environment and individual responsibility. For those who have written to me or at least share these concerns, this consultation would be a fantastic opportunity to engage with ongoing schemes.
