Mersey Estuary Blueprint

Project dates: December 2021 - March 2022

Project aims: 

Mersey Rivers Trust worked alongside the North West Coastal Forum to bring together local leaders in coastal, catchment and marine partners to form a local working group. 

The aim of the group was to co-design a national framework to streamline the communication and implementation of Government strategies for a wholescape approach across catchment, coast and marine. 

Mersey Rivers Trust through this project drew together a stakeholder group who together reviewed various plans and strategies from the last 30 years and an outcome was that a revised "blueprint" would be needed for the future. 

In the Mersey Estuary there have been five major documents which have helped shape the existance, monitoring and develop in the estuary zone. 

A future Mersey Estuary Blueprint would need to include new elements to safeguard against the pressures of the future. 

Stakeholders interested in forming the Mersey Estuary Group to develop a future 'Blueprint for the Mersey Estuary' have been consulted and will be updated through ongoing communications. 

We are currently trying to secure funding for future engagement with stakeholders and to commision a new 'Blueprint'.
