CamEO Partnership

CamEO Wider Partnership

The aim of the CamEO Partnership is to encourage collaboration between sectors and organisations that are working to improve waterbodies and surrounding landscapes. Furthermore, it seeks to limit the potential negative impacts of organisations working in isolation/silos.

CamEO Partnership members include environmental charities, water companies, statutory bodies and local authorities. Specifically these include: the Environment Agency, Natural England, Norfolk Rivers Trust, the Wildlife Trust Beds, Cambs, Northants, Cambridge County Council, the Wild Trout Trust, Cambridge City Council, Great Ouse Rivers Trust, Newmarket Chalk Streams Trust, Anglian Water, Cambridge Water, Affinity Water and more.

We are seeking to engage with more landowners, farmers and businesses.

The Partnership meets three times per year and the next meeting is scheduled for June 2024.

CamEO Steering Group

The CamEO Steering Group was established in April 2023 and brings together key organisations in the catchments of the Cam and Ely Ouse.

The primary purpose of the CamEO Steering Group is to provide strategic direction to the numerous parties that share the common objective of improving the water environment in CamEO Catchment Area, and thereby help CamEO progress towards the vision of a Cam and Ely Ouse catchment with good quality and resilient water environments, that are protected and enhanced and able to benefit communities and businesses.

Sub-Catchment Partnerships

Sub-catchment partnerships are typically led by local independent groups, championing improvements on each of the major river systems within the CamEO catchment. Many of the projects proposed/undertaken will be community orientated, relying heavily on volunteer time.

Each year, the Partnership helps to create a partnership action plan, outlining action and support for the year ahead.
