Catchment based Approach

Catchment based Approach (CaBA)

The Catchment Based Approach is an initiative that was set-up to encourage a more civil society-led approach to looking after our rivers. There are CaBA partnerships working in over 100 river catchments across England directly delivering targets of the Governments 25 Year Environment Plan.

Catchment Based Approach

Northern Becks sub-catchment

We at the LCSP were successful at establishing the Northern becks CaBA partnership back in 2015. Since then we have been working collaboratively with a range of organisations and communities to deliver environmental improvements to these chalk streams to create healthier water environments for both people and wildlife.

The Northern becks CaBA partnership is now hosted by the Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Trust. We are working collaboratively with them to help deliver more for the Northern chalk streams.

CaBA Chalk Streams Strategy

The chalk-streams restoration strategy is a comprehensive, up-to-date analysis of the issues threatening chalk streams in England, of the ways in which ecological pressures are assessed and regulated.

It was release on 15th October 2021 and is availble to view via the link below:
