The first phase of developing The Estuary Plan was taken forward by the Alde and Ore Estuary Partnership, May 2012 to November 2019. The Alde and Ore Community Partnership is now taking forward the community’s role in the implementation of the plan. Details of the former AOEP and the continuing Alde and Ore Estuary Trust, which is the fund raising body for The Estuary Plan, are given below.
Twelve volunteer members make up this partnership and offer a wide range of skills including financier, farming, company businessman, chemical industry manager, lawyer, agriculturalist, ecologist, cardiologist, and police commander. The Partnership is advised by the Environment Agency, Natural England and Suffolk County and District Councils.
