Solway Tweed River Basin District Public Consultation

This public consultation provides the public with the opportunity to contribute to the development of new approaches for the water management challenges for the Solway Tweed river basin district.
The consultation is set in the context of an update on the condition of the water environment and progress on delivering the first management plan published in 2009 which set targets for water management for 2015 and beyond.

The information and analyses presented in the document support the development of the second river basin plan to be published in 2015. Specifically public views are being sought and ideas for making the step change required to meet these key challenges.

Since publishing the first river basin plan understanding of impacts on the water environment has greatly improved and partnership working has strengthened. However, there is still a lot of work to be done in order to meet the challenge of achieving good ecological status for the waters in the Solway Tweed river basin. Public input to the consultation and involvement in the second river basin plan is essential to meet the shared goal of sustainable water management. Download here
