Waterways - what we do

Explains what the council does to improve and care for our waterways.

What does the council do to improve waterways in the East Riding?

We work in partnership with public, private, community and voluntary organisations to manage, develop, enhance and promote our waterways so that they contribute to economic, environmental and social regeneration.  Between 2008 and 2010, we worked closely with the Coast, Wolds, Wetlands and Waterways (CWWW) LEADER programme to establish the East and North Yorkshire Waterways Partnership. 

From its inception, the partnership’s mission has been to develop, restore, enhance and promote the waterways in our local area for the benefit of everyone.  The partnership strives to bring together diverse interest groups and build consensus so that all partners are working cooperatively to manage and care for our waterways. 

The work of the partnership is driven by the Waterways Strategy 2012-2020, which sets out a long-term strategic approach to the regeneration of our waterways.
