Improving rivers in South West Wiltshire - meeting on 12 July 2017


The South West Wiltshire ‘Our Community Matters’ event was held on 16 November 2016 at the Nadder Centre in Tisbury. Over 90 members of the public and partner agencies attended and participated in the event, which focused on the data set out in the Community Area Joint Strategic Assessment 2016-17.


Participants at the event used the data to inform themed roundtable discussions and to identify local priorities underpinned by the research. On the Environment table two of the identified priorities were:


  • River quality

  • Wildlife and diversity


Many local people are already involved in groups helping to monitor local rivers or improving local habitats for wildlife. The Area Board has invited Martijn Antheunisse (Team Leader Water Projects, Wiltshire Wildlife Trust) to give an overview of their work with partners in the Mere, Tisbury and Wilton community areas and explain more about how local volunteers can get involved in the future.


The meeting will take place on Wednesday 12th July 2017, 5pm at Wilton Town Council Chamber.
