Kent: Action Table

Each of the actions below is of equal importance, they are not prioritised. The actions have been developed around the themes of the partnership however, it is recognised that the themes interlink and many partners, businesses and local communities can help us to deliver these objectives.

Our action tables are always a ‘work in progress’ which are continually expanding and changing to reflect the needs of the catchment. Please let us know if you think there are any additional actions we need to include via our contact form or discussion forum.

Further information on how we will monitor these actions can be found in our Monitoring Plan.
