Weaver-Gowy Catchment Partnership

Last week, the Meres & Mosses Nature Improvement Area and Landscape Partnership Scheme project attended the Steering Group meeting of the relatively new Weaver-Gowy Catchment Partnership.  Co-ordinated by Groundwork Cheshire, this project will look at improving water quality and wildlife habitat, and reducing flood risk throughout this river system which stretches from Whitchurch right up to the edge of the Mersey estuary and across to the fringes of the Peak District and therefore covering the northern part of the project area in north Shropshire and south Cheshire.  The Meres & Mosses NIA/LPS will be playing a part in helping to drive this forward to benefit the communities we are working with, and is was great to start with a visit to Huw Rowlands’ farm near Chester who is looking to play his part in a better future for the river.

Partners see some of the work to be carried out.
