The project will deliver a pilot restoration of the wetland habitat within the Low Hall Local Nature Reserve through the creation of a Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) during 2017 and 2018.
It will reconnect local people with their landscape by offering opportunities for volunteers to survey the Hey Brook and to deliver a series of practical habitat creation projects. Once the pilot is complete a second wetland project will be delivered in the Carbon Landscape area during 2019 and 2020.
The installation of a reed bed will increase the resilience of the landscape by providing additional storm-water attenuation to communities down-stream of the Low Hall reserve.
- Two wetland SuDS facilities created
- 1.3 ha improvements to riparian habitat
- Two water quality improvement projects delivered
- Eight people established as citizen scientists to monitor water quality within the Carbon Landscape
