The current river basin management plans were published in February 2016. The plans must be reviewed and updated every 6 years.
The second consultation on updating the plans is the Challenges and Choices consultation. We seek your views on:
- the challenges that limit the benefits society obtains from the water environment in the river basin districts in England (the challenges)
- the best way to address these issues (the choices)
The information we gather through this consultation will help us update the current river basin management plans. We will publish and consult on draft plans in 2020. We are required to do this by the Water Framework Directive.
