Natural England and the Environment Agency have developed a Project ‘tool’ which can be used as a reference tool for members and external organisations to see what projects are happening in the Greater Solent catchment. This includes current and future projects, and terrestrial projects because of the link with the marine environment e.g. diffuse pollution which flows via the groundwater or rivers to the sea, migratory fish, etc. There are multiple benefits to this approach, including raising awareness of important issues, maximising opportunities to work in collaboration and partnerships with others, help attract funding, add credibility, share expertise, which in turn should lead to improved knowledge or improvements for people and wildlife.
The project list will be refreshed in March and September each year.
