Farming & Land Use

Farming stakeholders those using the land in the catchment contribute to, and benefit form, healthy ecosystems. Diffuse pollution is a particular focus in this work programme as these sectors can contribute to the degradation of the river; therefore CamEO is focused on limiting potentially harmful diffuse pollution entering the catchment with the aid of the Water Stewardship Business Board.

Specific Objectives:

  • Reduce the impact of Diffuse Water pollution from Agriculture in vulnerable & protected areas of the catchment.
  • Encourage and support sensitive management of watercourses and riparian habitat.
  • Promote and encourage best practice for delivering natural flood management solutions.
  • Promote and support the role that businesses can play to support sustainable supply chains.
