19. Stort Navigation in Bishop's Stortford – Reedbeds
Theme: Habitats and wildlife
- To maintain and enhance the river's natural habitats and wildlife
This project aims to restore and connect habitats up and downstream of Bishop's Stortford through creating reedbeds along the non- towpath side of the Navigation.
The project hopes to create reedbeds along the offside (non-towpath side) of the Navigation throughout Bishop's Stortford. This would connect upstream and downstream habitats, as well as being a valuable habitat in itself. Currently the offside of the Navigation contains poor habitat and is visually unattractive – the project would reverse this.
