Understanding and improving all aspects of water within the Adur and Ouse catchment
Our catchment area is a beautiful part of south east England, showcasing rolling chalk downland, white cliff faces and the rivers Adur and Ouse, which flow from forest streams in the High Weald to their highly urbanised estuaries on the Sussex coast at Shoreham and Newhaven.
This website is home to Adur & Ouse Partnership and Catchment Management Plan. Our aim is to work together with others, to protect and improve the rivers Adur and Ouse, their coastline and underlying groundwater, for people and for wildlife.
We invite any group or organisation with similar aspirations to join us on our journey to deliver truly integrated and comprehensive catchment management.
