The Blueprint for the Culm will be a long-term (at least 25-year) management plan that guides and informs all investment decisions in the River Culm Catchment.
It will be developed through a collaborative process involving residents, community organisations, businesses and statutory authorities so that it is informed by and has the widest possible support and ownership amongst those affected by its activities and outcomes.
We have now started the Blueprint development process, with the launch of the Connecting the Culm Forum (the next meeting scheduled for June) and a series of Working Groups. These cover the following areas and themes:
- Upper Culm
- Lower Culm
- Water Quality
- Nature-Based Solutions
Working Groups are open to everyone and we’ll be sharing dates of future meetings through our newsletter and on our Latest News page – do join in! All meetings take place on this link: https://zoom.us/j/2825802844
We have developed a range of online tools to support the Working Groups. Meeting agendas, minutes and other documents can be found on our Google Drive and we are gradually filling in a Google Map that shows all the different issues emerging from the Working Group discussions.
