Flood-hit farmers given £800,000 to help develop natural flood management projects
Apr 10, 2017
Groups of farmers and organisations in the north of England will benefit from funding to develop natural flood management projects.
The focus of this round of the Facilitation Fund is on developing a new approach to natural flood management, to help communities hit by the winter storms of 2015 and early 2016.
Organisations such as the National Trust, Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Rivers Trust are joining forces with farmers.
They will plant trees, create water meadows and restore rivers to their natural meanders within river catchments in Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Northumberland, County Durham and Yorkshire.
