The River Ecclesbourne forms part of the ‘catchment based approach’, launched by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in April 2011.

These pilots take a new collaborative approach to protecting and improving the health of our water environment and tackle issues across the whole of the river catchment. This plan sets out the 6 main areas where we hope to make a difference. It also captures the actions that the partnership has identified over the 15 months that the pilot has been running.
