We join new River Culm partnership in Devon

We are thrilled to join a new £1m partnership to tackle key environmental issues and adapt to climate change in the River Culm catchment area.

Connecting the Culm is a three year project which aims to make the River Culm and its floodplain more resilient to flood and drought, improve water quality, support biodiversity and habitat, and involve local people and organisations in the process.

A vital part of the project will be collaborating with residents, organisations and landowners in the catchment area to explore solutions to the environmental challenges we face. That’s where we come in, we will be leading on the co-creation activity of the project. This process of working with the people who live and work in the area and local organisations will directly contribute to developing the solutions that will feed into a 25 year Masterplan for the Culm Catchment Area.
