Wetlands

Wetlands areas, whether this is a small farm pond, fen, reedbed, saltmarsh or an extensive network of farm drains, scrapes and floodplain grassland, are all essential elements of our biodiversity within the landscape, often supporting rare and specialised plants, invertebrates and mammals not found elsewhere. The last century saw a dramatic decline in wetland habitat and as such it is important to conserve, restore and create new wetland areas where possible.

If you would like to consider creating or restoring a new wetland area, whether with grant aid, for sporting requirements or purely for conservation interest, consider discussing your requirements with Oakbank. We can advise on the design, planning permission, planting and management of new wetland areas as well as surveying (e.g. water vole, great crested newt), enhancement or restoration of an existing wetland.

The Freshwater Habitats Trust has an excellent selection of free factsheets available if required.

    This is good news, as for many farms Stewardship is very much a business decision based on the financial proposal. The Environment cannot be left to ebb and flow purely with the movements of a market, it need stability and consistency, but farmers also need fair compensation. twitter.com/CooperBeth/sta…
