The Market Weighton Canal and River Foulness Action Plan was commissioned by Newport Parish Council and has been funded by the East Riding and North Yorkshire Waterways Partnership.
The action plan sets out a long- term vision for the waterways with the emphasis on creating new routes to include surrounding villages and visitor attractions.
Sustainability is at the core of the initiative, together with the integration of economic and environmental issues, which lie within the scope of the waterways' flood management and land drainage functions.
Communities and local organisations are now being urged to support the plan.
Gordon Shields, community leader for the project, said: "We hope local communities will join with us to develop the Market Weighton Canal and River Foulness area to enhance its contribution for the social and environmental benefit of all.
"We'll be holding an open workshop in the next few weeks at Newport and all are welcome."
