MERSEY ESTUARY FORUM: 11 JULY 2014
The Mersey Rivers Trust's programme of events continued this summer with the Mersey Estuary Forum taking place on 11th July at Liverpool's Maritime Museum. Professor Peter Batey chaired the event, with a variety of speakers and the opportunity for a few people to get onto their 'soapbox'. Everyone was able to have their say and this was captured for the Catchment-based Approach too.
The Forum brings together representatives from the public, private and voluntary sectors to discuss a wide variety of issues relating to the Mersey Estuary, ranging from broad strategic matters to very local topics affecting communities on the banks of the estuary. It provides an annual update and an opportunity for debate on topical issues associated with water quality and waterside regeneration in the Merseyside area and is now part of the new Catchment-based Approach.
