£7,500 for habitat improvements on Wye

Thursday 21 May 2015

Defra's Catchment Partnership Action Fund has awarded the South Chilterns Catchment £7,500 to carry out habitat enhancement work on a couple of sections of the River Wye.

The money will pay for tree work and the installation of large woody debris in the river which will enhance the conditions for fish and other wildlife typical of chalk streams like the Wye. Gravel will also be addded to the riverbed to create more typical chalk stream habitat - currrently the riverbed is very silty. The enhancements will take place at Funges Meadow in June, with support from the Chilterns Chalk Streams Project and at Bourne End in the autumn where the work will be led by the Project.
