Funding success for the Watermeadows

South Northamptonshire Council has just received £147,375 of RDPE Water Environment Grant from the Environment Agency to implement river restoration and habitat works at the Watermeadows in Towcester. The works will be scoped out in a feasibility study to be undertaken over the next few months, and will aim to improve fish passage on the River Tove, address bank erosion, improve habitats and biodiversity, and enhance natural flood management. Red Kite Network have been involved with the Watermeadows project since 2017, having produced a Landscape Management Plan for the site, and subsequently project managing the action plan including funding applications.
