Lowdham NFM – tree planting

TRT has been involved in planting 1,700 trees as part of a Natural Flood Management (NFM) scheme in Lowdham

TRT’s role in delivering NFM has been recognised again. As part of the Government’s £15m funding for the development of NFM, 34 Community Scale projects were allocated funding to deliver and monitor the effectiveness of NFM with TRT working in the Lowdham catchment.

We are well into the delivery in multiple locations of a range of NFM features including leaky barriers, reconnected floodplain and creation of temporary water storage areas.  As part of the project we offered a volunteer day to the Environment Agency to plant trees which will improve ground infiltration and slow down overland flows of heavy rainwater. The day was covered by East Midlands Today, Radio Four, Radio Nottingham and the local press.

The local press who covered the story were West Bridgford Wire and Nottinghamshire Live
