Following further studies from the Environment Sciences team at UEA led by Richard Cooper, their studies have concluded through the analysis of water and riverbed sediment samples across the river Wensum catchment, their research demonstrates that STW;s significantly impact upon the phosphorus dynmics of this lowland calcareous river system.

River Wensum - the battle continues

Written by

wwg header 2

The group continues with its objection to the planned recycling plant in Lenwade, which the applicate has now applied for a 2nd time.

We have not only got a letter of objection from Mark Lloyd this time round, but are lobbying hard with Natural England on why they have no objections to this plant adjacent to a SSSI and SAC which Natural England are paid to protect.

See http://eplanning.norfolk.gov.uk/PlanAppDisp.aspx?AppNo=C%2f5%2f2017%2f5007 Both Mark's letter and my own from WWG are available to view from this link.

If any body wants to offer their support to this objection, please email your comments to mawp@norfolk.gov.uk

Regards

Kelvin

Much of this still stands today.

On Thursday the 15th Dec £5,000 was secured from the Broads River Catchment CaBA fund to support Norfolk Rivers Trust in the facilitation of the Wensum within the "Your Fisheries" pilot.

We are seeking a further matched funding from the Agency, in order to support this 12 month pilot scheme, one of many running across England within each river basin region.

Regards
