The Alde and Ore Estuary Partnership worked with County and District councils and statutory bodies to develop a plan for the future management of the river defences to protect the Estuary including businesses, houses, land and wildlife, and the local economy.
The Estuary Plan for the future management of the river defences to protect the life of the estuary was endorsed by all statutory bodies in 2016.
