Severn Estuary Partnership

Set up in 1995, the Severn Estuary Partnership is an independent, estuary-wide NON-statutory initiative led by local authorities and statutory agencies. We work with all those involved in the management of the estuary, from planners to port authorities, fishermen to farmers and many more with an interest in the future of the estuary.



The Partnership brings people together to resolve problems and realise opportunities. We currently:


  1. Facilitate effective communication across and between organisations and individuals
  2. Establish and embed a set of ‘common principles’ for sustainable estuary use via Partners’ strategies, policies and action plans
  3. Act as a co-ordinating body to assist the effective and efficient delivery of agreed estuary-wide actions
  4. Promote and publicise the estuary at local, national and international level
  5. Add value and fill gaps in effective estuary management, providing extra capacity when required.
