Opened 22 Oct 2021


The consultation on updating the Severn river basin management plan for the third cycle (2021-2027) is published by the Environment Agency. The Environment Agency lead the work for the Severn.

We work with the Environment Agency, and partners, to ensure that the appropriate collaborative arrangements are in place for planning and managing the cross border catchment for the Severn river basin district.

The consultation asks you to consider the issues impacting upon the water environment and the actions needed to protect and restore Wales’ waters. Your views are essential in helping us update the final plans.
