River Prize Applicant: Rewilding Enfield’s Urban Rivers

The project is led by the London Borough of Enfield and Thames21, with assistance from Thames Water and advisory input from the Environment Agency. Funders include Defra, Thames Water, the Environment Agency and Greater London Authority. Works to the watercourses and their catchments include the creation of wetlands, reedbeds, rain gardens and rain planters, as well as de-culverting a stream through a popular park. In addition public engagement and education is key, and interpretation and access enhancements are being carried out on each site. Consultation was carried out before works, and additional project partners include many volunteers and advocates from the local community, as well as Friends groups in parks >>
