The Cray Catchment Improvement Group and have your say

Thames21 have worked with communities in the Cray Catchment for ten years. We are proud to be members of the River Cray Catchment Improvement Group (CIG). These groups are being brought to together to build partnerships for River improvement throughout the Country.

The group’s primary purpose is the development and delivery of a River Cray Catchment Improvement Plan, this will be achieved with community engagement and you can help.

First have your say about the River Cray catchment by completing our on line Questionnaire

The Cray CIG is seeking your experience of our local rivers as part of the development of a ‘Cray Catchment Plan’ which will set out the aims and objectives of maintaining and improving a natural river system for the benefit of wildlife and people.

We need to hear your thoughts about your local stretch of river: What you like about it, what you don’t like. What would help you love it more and what you can suggest be done to improve it. (Even if you do not live near the river, we still would like to hear your views and comments)

Please help by completing and submitting this survey and then together we can begin to make our rivers a better place for the natural environment and our communities.
