Waterfall in woodland

Flooding can have a devastating impact on riverbanks. This case study details our partnership work with landowners along the River Derwent – restoring riverbanks through tree planting.

Following disastrous floods in the north-west of England we’ve been working with local landowners to:

  • help stabilise banks
  • slow flood water
  • reduce the likelihood and impact of floods in the future.
