Essex Rivers Hub

Reprofile banks to create better bankside habitat for marginal plants.

The banks are very steep, which reduces the types and number of plants that can grow here. Reprofiling the banks so that they have a more gradual slope will increase the number and variety that can grow along the banks and create better connectivity between bank and channel habitats.
