The current river basin management plans were published in February 2016. These outlined the actions needed to protect and improve the water environment. Work to implement the plans has to date enhanced over 3200 km of the water environment in England.


We launched the Working Together consultations on the 22 June 2018 for eight River Basin Districts: Anglian, Humber, North West, Northumbria, Severn, South East, South West and Thames. This is the first phase of public consultation to review and update the current plans.


The consultation seeks your views on:


  • how you can get involved in the review and update of the plans
  • the proposed timetable and content of the programme of work to review and update the plans
  • how other plans and strategies affect, or are affected by, the river basin management plans
  • whether all relevant stakeholders have been identified


You can find out more about river basin planning and future engagement via the consultation link below.


We have produced the consultation using an easy to use online tool.
