Northumberland Rivers Trust: The Trust is a new organisation that was officially created in July 2011. Our aim is to work with others to improve and protect the rivers and streams of Northumberland. The waterbodies we will focus on are those flowing into the North Sea, North of the Tyne and South of the Tweed. We are created as a Company Limited by Guarantee and have applied to the Charities Commission to become a Registered Charity.
What are our priorities? We will produce a series of short Catchment Summaries over the winter. These will identify issues and what we see as priorities for the Aln, Blyth/Pont, Coquet, Wansbeck and North Northumberland Coastal Streams. We intend to gather views from a newly formed Advisory Group on these documents to make sure we focus on the right issues and avoid duplication with others.
