The Fowey Estuary is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt estuaries in Cornwall. The Fowey estuary has a rich and varied wildlife, landscape and historic heritage. These assets exist alongside an extensive range of leisure and commercial activities. The Fowey Estuary Partnership was set up in 1997 to meet the need for holistic management of the estuary, balancing the needs of tourism, commerce and leisure interests. The management of the estuary is embodied in the Fowey Estuary Management Plan, which was developed through extensive consultation and community involvement. This plan represents the Partnerships vision of management of the Fowey estuary for the benefit of all. The Fowey Estuary is a special place and we hope that all people using it for pleasure or work will help to make sure its natural beauty remains unspoilt.
