Our Vision


Brown Trout © Keith Wallington"For the Darent and Cray to be a clean healthy river system with a sustainable flow which supports a diversity of wildlife by 2027."


We aim to achieve a mosaic of river habitats and where possible restore a natural river structure incorporating meanders, pools and riffles to ensure that flow-sensitive ecology can flourish.


At the same time, we aim to achieve a sustainable level of abstraction which meets the needs of society but maintains river flows in dry summers. The rivers will be accessible to multiple user groups to enjoy, and form a key feature of the towns and villages through which they flow.
