Mark Reckless MP is urging local residents to take part in a new consultation by the Environment Agency asking people across England what they think are the significant issues and priorities to protect and improve our local rivers.
The Challenges and Choices consultation on the Thames River Basin District, which includes the river Medway, runs from 22 June to 22 December 2013.
The best way to protect and improve the water environment is by everyone being actively involved. The Challenges and Choices consultation (formerly called Significant Water Management Issues or SWMI) will give communities and our partners the opportunity to tell us what they think are the most significant issues for the water environment, the best ways to tackle these issues, and what the priorities should be.
Mark Reckless said:
“It is really important that we work to protect and improve our local rivers for all to enjoy. I believe the best way to do this is by working collaboratively, ensuring that we make our rivers a better place for people and for wildlife.”
