Norfolk’s Two Chalk Rivers – Restored, Revitalised, Resilient

‘Norfolk’s Two Chalk Rivers – Restored, Revitalised, Resilient’ is a collaborative project between Norfolk Rivers Trust and the Norfolk Coast Partnership. The project aims to deliver 20 km of river restoration on the Hun and Stiffkey – two rare chalk rivers of international importance (with only 210 chalk streams worldwide). A range of Nature-based Solutions (NbSs) – from wetlands and ponds to tree and reedbed planting – will be created to improve water quality, biodiversity and habitat connectivity and complexity, with the added benefit of capturing carbon and mitigating the impacts of climate change.

An important element of the project focuses on public engagement and the development of new skills for local people. A comprehensive community plan has been created, and this includes a variety of training workshops including filmmaking, species identification surveys and riverfly monitoring, along with many opportunities for volunteers. In addition, the project will provide 6 local jobs and 4 kickstart placements (for 16–24-year-olds).

This project is funded by the Government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The fund was developed by Defra and its Arm’s-Length Bodies. It is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with Natural England, the Environment Agency and Forestry Commission.
