The Somerset Water Management Partnership (SWMP) provides an opportunity for a group of stakeholders to meet together to consider water matters of significance affecting, or with the potential to affect, the communities, landscape, economy and ecology in the catchment areas of the Parrett, Brue, Axe and their tributaries.

The Partnership provides a forum for consultation to take place, debate issues and test whether a consensus can be achieved, and if so to then communicate it.
