Building our network

We’re really pleased to have been accepted onto the Adur and Ouse Catchment Partnership after presenting to them last month at their quarterly meeting.

Hosted by the Ouse & Adur Rivers Trust and formed in 2011, the Partnership is a range of organisations, groups, agencies, and individuals all committed to working together to improve the water environment and surrounding landscape across the whole catchment for both people and wildlife.

The Partnership includes organisations such as: The Sussex Wildlife Trust, South Downs National Park, South East Water, Southern Water, District Councils and the Environment Agency. We very much look forward to contributing to the catchment scale work for the Ouse, bringing increased community representation to the partnership, and working for mutual benefit of the river.

We have also been speaking with Weald to Waves, an emerging network who are establishing a nature recovery corridor from the High Weald to the Sussex coast and revived seas, encompassing over 20,000 hectares of contiguous habitat. We are currently scoping partnership opportunities with them.
