This page contains information on the consultations we will carry out as we develop the second round of river basin management plans (RBMPs).
In December 2009, the Environment Agency published river basin management plans (RBMPs) covering all the water environments of England and Wales. The plans outlined what would be done to protect and improve the water environment. The Environment Agency is now reviewing and updating the plans, and will publish the revised documents in December 2015.
The Environment Agency is holding formal consultations at three points in the river basin planning process. These consultations will help raise awareness of the challenges facing our water environment and the ways in which the Environment Agency and its partners will tackle them.
The Working together consultations asks how the Environment Agency can work with a wide range of groups and individuals to deliver the first river basin management plans and develop the second river basin management plans.
The Challenges and Choices consultation will ask you for you views on what you think are the most significant issues for each river basin district in England.
The draft plans will ask you to consider the issues, measures and delivery partners that are proposed to deliver the improvements in the water environment to 2021.
