We are funded by our members. Members are offered the opportunity to become part of our SEP Management Group, which provides advice and guidance, and oversees the work that the partnership does through regular meetings and communication with the SEP team. Current members include representatives from local authorities and government agencies from across the Severn Estuary area.
Why should you be involved?
It is vital that your interests in the Severn Estuary are represented to ensure the Partnership is truly representative. We want to ensure that all those working in issues relating to the Severn Estuary, its environment and its management are represented. Contact us discuss your involvement and/or membership of SEP, or for more information.
The Severn Estuary Partnership:
- Provides a flexible and supportive service to all those involved in management or with an interest in the Estuary
- Promotes a strategic estuary–wide view on issues, policies and proposals for action on the Severn through the Strategy for the Severn Estuary
- Acts as a mechanism for monitoring and reviewing progress made on actions suggested within the Strategy
- Highlights examples of good practice
- Sources funding and delivers new projects spanning multiple themes across the estuary.
