Consultation: Working Together – River Basin Management Plans

Closes 22nd December 2018

The Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) have launched consultations on the River Basin Management Plan (RBMP) process. The current plans run to 2021 and must be reviewed and updated every 6 years.

This consultation is the start of this updating process; it sets out the steps for review, the proposed timetable and how stakeholders can get involved in order to produce revised RBMPs for the period 2021-27.

The Environment Agency has responsibility for the 6 river basin districts in England, including the North West (the others being Anglian, Humber, South East, South West and Thames). It also leads on the cross border districts of Northumbria and Severn. However the two North West cross border plans are led by SEPA (for Solway Tweed) and Natural Resources Wales (for the Dee).
