2025 target

Improve 105 km of waterways (15 km per year x 7 years)

Current resource (Kent Habitat Survey 2012)

6592 ha

Rationale

This target is based on the Key Performance Indicator of ‘length improved’ used by the Environment Agency. However, this figure is based on the Environment Agency’s area which includes East Sussex, part of Surrey, South London and Kent and it is therefore difficult to give a precise figure for Kent only. The target is therefore a conservative figure.
