The Beverley Brook is relatively unknown compared to other rivers in the south-west of London but nevertheless, it has an active Catchment Partnership. A Catchment Partnership is a group of organisations and individuals with a stake in the river, who come together to look at the issues it faces and work collaboratively to deliver improvements and make the river a better place for people and wildlife.
The Beverley Brook Catchment Partnership was established in 2013, it is hosted by the South East Rivers Trust and includes representatives and topic experts from a wide range of organisations such as the Environment Agency, water companies, local volunteer and ‘Friends of’ groups, local councils, Wildlife Trusts, The Royal Parks, the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust and Natural England.
As part of a national initiative called the ‘Catchment Based Approach’ (CaBA for short), the Beverley Brook Catchment Partnership has committed to making information about the river more accessible for the general public and has created a set of Catchment Plan pages. These pages provide an overview of the Beverley Brook catchment, including the issues affecting the river, our Action Plan to address these and some of the projects that have already been completed.
At the moment these are in a pdf format but in the future, we plan to set up a dedicated webpage for the Partnership. You can view the Catchment Plan pages by clicking here.
