Trent Rivers Trust has been working with a number of partners to develop a series of natural flood management measures in the catchment upstream of Southwell in Nottinghamshire.
The FRAMES Southwell project aims to improve flood resilience in Southwell through natural flood management (NFM) intervention and community engagement. Working with landowners within the catchment means that NFM measures such as leaky barriers, earth bunds as well as online and offline storage ponds have been installed to temporarily attenuate water during high flow events. Partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council, National Flood Forum and Southwell Flood forum has allowed for community resilience to be improved through engagement activities. This project is funded by INTERREG FRAMES as well as Nottinghamshire County Council.
