CEP Advisory Group


The Colne Estuary Partnership Advisory Group also meets several times a year. It consists of representatives nominated from a wide range of stakeholder organisations with an interest in the Colne estuary.

This group is currently chaired by Professor Graham Underwood from the University of Essex.

This group meets to raise any matters related to the Colne and its management, and to provide feedback on consultations with statuory bodies. Conflicts between user groups and gaps in the knowledge are also identified by this group.


The last Advisory Group meeting took place on Thursday 21st June 2012.
