Groundwork NE & Cumbria (Groundwork) are pleased to be working in partnership with the Environment Agency (EA) to lead ongoing development of the Tyne Estuary Partnership (TEP).
Invested in the long-term environmental and economic enhancement of the estuary; this strong, strategic, influential partnership is making a meaningful and sustainable impact on the River Tyne and the region as a whole.
We will achieve this by delivering environmental enhancements through innovative Nature Based Solutions (NBS) and demonstrating ecological, water quality and biodiversity improvements. This will also realise the wider economic and community benefits that joined up action to tackle environmental issues facing the Tyne can achieve.
