Themes: Flow; Habitats and wildlife; People

Objectives:

  • To maintain sufficient flow to support a healthy river ecosystem
  • To maintain and enhance the river's natural habitats and wildlife
  • To increase people's awareness, appreciation, education and involvement

Project description

To remove a weir (a fish barrier to migration) and restore the river through the site.

Through the removal of the weir and restoration works to the wider area, around 2km of river can be restored creating better habitat for wildlife. This would also allow more people to actively have access and use the river through graded banks in specific locations. The project can also include creation of flood plain habitats through associated development in the local area.
