East of England Forum
East of England Region
The forum which is one of the eight across England and was brought about to provide focus at Regional level within the Angling Trust. It also has a key role to play in working at both regional and local level with the Environment Agency, providing consultation and partnership on fisheries and angling.
The Angling Trust East of England Forum is an open meeting which is held three or four times a year and provides an opportunity for fishing clubs, associations, individual anglers and all who care about angling a chance to feedback their views to both the Angling Trust and the Environment Agency on a range of important subjects. This is your opportunity to influence the decisions, strategies and help identify common issues that impact angling across the region. The Forum will also allow anglers and clubs the opportunity to get involved in local projects and initiatives.
As can be seen from the diagram below, the Eastern Region is sub divided into 7 catchment based consultatives to provide the local framework. Some of this consultative structure has been in place for a number of years, whilst some areas have little or no consultative structure.
Work is now well underway in establishing a consultative structure and representation across the region. More details about the East Region can be found on there own website HERE
