If you spend any time in Cherry Orchard Jubilee Country Park in Rochford you might notice some additions to the river (Nobles Green Ditch, a tributary of the River Roach), which flows through it.

River basin management plans set out the priorities for protecting and improving the water environment to achieve benefits for the economy and to people's health and wellbeing.

These plans form an important part of the collaborative and integrated approach to catchment planning for water.

There is an interesting article in the Guardian about the benefits that are being witnessed in the rivers where Beavers have been reintroduced in Devon.

The Angling Trust, Fish Legal and WWF-UK are in the High Court today fighting a judicial review of the government's failure to stop agricultural pollution degrading 44 rivers, lakes and estuaries which are specially protected areas in England.

We believe that the government was required by the EU's Water Framework Directive to stop this ongoing pollution in these sites by 2015. They haven't done this and so we're taking them to court.

Roding, Beam and Ingrebourne Catchment Partnership have launched their Catchment Plan, which sets out what they would like to achieve for rivers in this area up to 2018.

In addition to this, there will be an appendix which will be continually updated to reflect what has been achieved and what additional elements have been added. Once this appendix is available it will be added to this website and will be updated regularly so please look out for it.

The catchment plan can be uploaded by clicking this link. A catchment summary is also available here.
