Have your say!
A joint initiative between the River Stour Trust and Sudbury Town Council aims to gain Designated Bathing Water status for the River Stour between the Granary Cut in Sudbury and Great Cornard Lock.
The River Stour is a Navigation and, as such, is used by a variety of craft so it is not our intention, specifically, to seek an increase in the number of swimmers in the river, but it is our view that all river users will benefit from an improvement in water quality.
If DBS status is granted, the Environment Agency will be required to monitor and protect this stretch of river and the local authority will need to display information about pollution levels during the bathing season.
