The Hogsmill Catchment Partnership is a group of key organisations who all have an interest in, or influence over, the Hogsmill River. The Partnership was established in 2014 to share knowledge, deliver projects and identify areas where we can work together to improve the water environment.
The Partnership 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 groups, local councils, Wildlife Trusts, Natural England and Universities.
The Catchment Partnership is part of an initiative called the ‘Catchment Based Approach’ (CaBA), which embeds collaborative working at a river catchment scale, delivering a range of environmental, social and economic benefits.
Across the country, Catchment Partnerships have made a commitment to making their work, and information about their river catchment, more accessible by publishing an online Catchment Plan. We hope that by showcasing the work of the Partnership, the general public can better understand the issues that face each river and how we are working together to make positive changes.
For the Hogsmill River, the Catchment Partnership have created an interactive Storymap Catchment Plan. It shows the issues facing the river, the action plan we have developed to address these and some of the projects that have already been delivered to improve the Hogsmill for people and wildlife.
