Evidence has been heard by the panel over six sessions, from a wide variety of organisations including voluntary and recreational groups who use the river.

As reported, the inquiry comes at a time when there have been frequently voiced concerns about issues relating to the river, from flooding to the need for real-time sewage discharge notifications.

You can download the draft final report from the council’s website [pdf].

The meeting takes place in the council chamber at the Civic Centre from 5.30pm on April 20, and will be streamed from this link.
