Chalk stream restoration implementation plan published

A plan to restore our chalk streams to health has been published by the Chalk Stream Restoration Group. This group is hosted by the Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) and is chaired by WTT Founder and Vice President, Charles Rangeley Wilson OBE. 

Charles says: 

It’s not a once-and-for-all fix-all, but I do think it marks a step-change in our collective attempts to restore good ecology to our beleaguered chalk streams.

Not only do we have a consensus plan with consensus actions and timelines, but we have now garnered explicit support from all quarters – regulators, industry and NGOs, and the small-but-becoming-bigger-every-day army of chalk stream enthusiasts – for ideas like the flagship projects, the review of waterbody boundaries & abstraction sensitivity bands, the enhanced scenario for chalk streams in the national framework planning process, Chalk Streams First etc.’

More information about chalk streams is available on our website, the CaBA website and Charles’ chalk streams website.
