From time to time, we publish an issue which is entirely made up of content from our partners and readers. This is one of those occasions and I hope you will agree that it is a brilliant way to showcase the breadth and interest of activity taking place in our Waterways Partnership area.

  • updates on the Chalkshire landscape programme, Cropton Forest Beaver Trial and Greater Water Parsnip project at Tophill Low
  • an overview of the Sustainable Landscapes Programme
  • an annual review of the Yorkshire Derwent Catchment Partnership 
  • information on various tools and resources including the Yorkshire Invasive Species Forum and INNS Mapper. 

And much more including reports on new barge traffic in Leeds and the Sullied Sediments’ award-winning project video.

Our next issue will be published in March 2021; contributions are always welcome from our readers. Please contact me to find out more.

About the Waterways Partnership

Sixteen inland waterways, including tidal rivers, rural canals, chalk streams and Yorkshire's largest natural lake, lie within the boundaries of the East and North Yorkshire Waterways Partnership.

These water bodies add greatly to attractiveness and prosperity of the local area and to the quality of life of our residents. Our waterways are important for many reasons, including navigation, biodiversity, heritage, flood risk management, freight, tourism, recreation and wellbeing.

This diversity of purpose and function makes managing and improving our waterways a real challenge. Many groups and users have a vested interest in our waterways and these interests must be balanced so we can work towards achieving wide-ranging benefits for local communities, the environment and the economy.

In 2011, the East and North Yorkshire Waterways Partnership was established with funding from the Coast, Wolds, Wetlands and Waterways LEADER programme. Through partnership working, public, private, community and voluntary organisations are encouraged to come together and develop our waterways so they contribute to local economic, environmental and social regeneration.
