The East Anglian Branch covers a geographical region that ranges from the North Norfolk coast to Hertfordshire in the south. This region includes rural areas with very low rainfall and low flow rivers, an important wetlands national park, a number of nitrate protection zones, a coastline with significant erosion problems and a number of important sewage treatment works that have recently been upgraded to state-of-the-art standards. The urban areas of the region are fast growing and the next few years will see some of the largest developments of brownfield sites in the UK. The economy of the region is dominated by intensive agriculture, food and drink processing and manufacture, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors but includes aerospace, automobile manufacture, printing, packaging and paper, environmental services and waste management. The region is traversed by a number of heavily used motorways and includes two important airports.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions about the branch and advice on how to get involved. We hope to see you at a branch event soon.View our Events
