Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


Objectives:
Improve water flow and quality; bank naturalisation and enhanced provisions for biodiversity; increased leisure, recreational and educational opportunities.

Methods:
Bank re-profiling using coir banks and new planting; removal of siltation to recreate single rather than two islands to enhance areas used extensively by wildlife, remove silt from lake to improve water quality and allow for the introduction of water safety training in schools, removal of toeboards, reedbed creation.

09.11.09 Next steps - approval in principle required from all those associated with proposals, detailed survey to define precise form and extent of the various parts, define programme for works execution, obtain funding. Possible constraints - quality of silt to be removed if necessary from site rather than to use in association with bank re-profiling and recreation of larger single island
