Local detailed knowledge about the issues in the Tyne catchment is a huge resource. Exploiting this resource was an important part of the project, and we particularly wanted to get information from people and groups that might not have had a voice in plans to improve their local rivers before. They helped us understand what to target for action in the Tyne Catchment Plan.
We were delighted with the wide response we received to the survey we conducted in May/June 2012. Over 200 people responded, telling us about 342 different issues across the Tyne catchment. The responses were very varied and from a diverse group of people. The results gave us a real understanding about what people think is important for the future of the Tyne and its tributaries.
