Essex Rivers Hub

Pant; Maple Lane Wimbish

Currently the banks are covered in dense scrub which is causing the channel to become very shaded. This reduces the potential for in-channel vegetation to develop and also makes access to the bank edge almost impossible.

150m of scrub removal would allow areas of the bank to be opened up, creating better public access and enabling in-channel vegetation to develop.

Once access to the banks improves, local people would be able to use this area more and this will create opportunities to educate people on the river environment and their own impacts on it and how they can get involved in improving their local river.
