For your information. At a recent meeting held by the Yorkshire Rivers Trusts the subject of Catchment Plans came up. Alistair Maltby, Northern Director of the Rivers Trust suggested that any trust considering the drawing up of a Catchment Plan should look at a couple of websites which relate to Catchment Plans which have already been drawn up. The main one suggested was the Ripple Project ((RIPPLE stands for Rivers Involving People, Places and Leading by Example.)) ((RIPPLE- Community River Plan – 6 Newsletters Winter 2008 – Autumn 2010)) (The Ballinderry Catchment Plan). Work done by the Eden Rivers Trust was also mentioned.
The meeting was also informed that Anthony Downing of the Rivers Trust will engage with trusts on what they should be doing when drawing up Catchment Management Plans.
