Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Environment Agency was created in 1996 and is Europes first organisation charged with protecting air, land and water under one roof. The Agencys Southern Region also inherited the responsibility for managing the inland Navigation of the River Medway. The Agency believes that an important part of this role is to encourage the pursuit of recreational activities along the 31km length of the Navigation. The navigable River Medway caters not only for the boating enthusiast but also for other water users and those who enjoy the Medway from the river bank. The Medway River Project has been established by co-operation between the Environment Agency, the Countryside Commission, Kent County Council, Maidstone Borough Council, Rochester City Council and the Tonbridge and Mailing Borough Council to promote leisure and tourism along the Navigation. The Projects main aims have been to establish links within the local community, conservation and river user groups. With so many interests sharing the river it is important to follow the various regulations to ensure that it remains a pleasure to use for all who enjoy its tranquillity and charm.
