Improvement to grassland area on bank of the Crouch

There is a grassland area on the west bank near Church Land, Crays Hill, that could be improved for wildlife and create better bankside habitat.

 This would involve working with the landowner to determine what the current management of the land is and determine how to improve this to benefit wildlife and the river environment. There is also a hedge running the length of the channel and this could also be improved to become more diverse and reduce shading to channel.
