Our last free flowing rivers and wild places are increasingly under threat from damaging development and loss of legal protections.

Save Our Rivers aims to provide those who care with the information and knowledge on how to use existing legal structures to fight back. Through lodging objections via the planning system and by responding to government consultations we can give the public an effective mechanism to keep the places they value safe.

Save Our Rivers believes everyone, wherever they live, should have a voice in the future of our National Parks and wild rivers.
