Central Rivers Initiative

Have your say......

‘Transforming the Trent Valley’ proposed landscape Partnership Scheme.

In May 2016 , the Central Rivers Initiative partnership submitted a £2-3 million funding application to the Heritage Lottery Fund to undertake a wide range of environmental, cultural and community-led projects within a the Trent valley covering parts of the rivers Trent, Tame and Dove (see map of area here).

The application will be assessed by the Heritage Lottery Fund and a final decision taken at the HLF Trustees' meeting in late October 2016, after which we will be informed whether we have been successful.

If successful, the ‘Transforming the Trent Valley’ scheme will receive funding for five years to help take forward projects that will involve and benefit the local communities in and adjacent to the river valley, for example:

* Creating a more robust and attractive landscape for local people and for visiting tourists to enjoy with access to sites of wildlife and cultural interest.

* Revealing the archaeological and industrial heritage that has shaped the river valley landscape

* Restoring characteristic river valley landscape features such as meandering river channels, water meadows and waterside trees

* Creating new and improved wildlife habitats such as reed beds, wet pastures and woodland encouraging species such as bittern, osprey and waders on land formerly quarried for sand and gravel

* Improving accessibility on foot, cycle and horseback with new opportunities for recreation and sport
