Four Priority Themes

The Brent Catchment Partnership focuses on 4 priority themes for improving the water environment :

Theme 1: Reducing Pollution

Objectives:

  • By 2021, water quality in the Brent catchment has improved and has a ‘moderate’ ability to support wildlife

A ‘moderate’ ability to support wildlife and means that:

Phosphate concentrations are 0.25 mg/l or less

Dissolved oxygen levels are 54% saturation or higher

Levels of total ammonia are no higher than 1.1mg/l

  • By 2027, it will have a ‘good’ ability to support wildlife

A ‘Good’ ability to support wildlife means that:

Phosphate concentration are 0.12 mg/l or less

Dissolved oxygen levels are 60% saturation or higher

Levels of total ammonia are no higher than 0.6mg/l

Theme 2: Making Rivers More Natural

Objective:

  • Transforming up to 10 kilometres of heavily modified river to a more natural condition by 2021

Theme 3: Tackling Invasive Non-native Species

Objectives:

  • Decreasing density and distribution of invasive non-native species in chosen locations by at least 20% by 2021
  • Having Giant Hogweed under a management programme in all parks, reserves and pathways by 2017

Theme 4: Creating Better Opportunities for Access and Recreation

Objectives:

  • Completing a 24-mile riverside trail from Barnet to Brentford on the Thames
  • Creating or improving 12 miles of riverside access for walking, cycling and the disabled throughout the catchment
  • Creating at least two new green spaces along the waterways in the Brent Catchment by 2021
