The people of West Norfolk are being invited to help shape the future of their local waterways.
The Environment Agency’s Challenges and Choices consultation wants to hear from residents about what future they foresee for rivers such as the Great Ouse and the Nar, and indeed other water courses and shorelines.
Mike Nunns, EA catchment manager, said: “We know that local people know their water environment better than anyone else, so if there is an issue affecting the health of their local river we want to know.
“We are also interested to hear any ideas people may have to tackle issues or good news stories that we can learn from.
“Whether positive or negative, we want to hear views which could help shape the future of our water environment.”
The consultation runs until Sunday, December 22 and is open to everyone, from businesses to utility companies, to wildlife groups and individuals.
People are able to have their say online at www.environment-agency.gov.uk/challengesandchoices.
All views received will be published anonymously on the agency’s website and used to form a River Basin Management Plan. The plan will set out how it will improve the water environment across Norfolk and beyond from 2015 to 2021.
