A – Built & Natural Heritage

Programme A – Creating and restoring built and natural heritage

There will be nine projects under Programme A – two projects focussing on restoring built heritage structures along the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal (A1 and A2), three focussing on re-naturalising sections of the canalised River Tame (A3, A5, A9) and four focussing on wetland habitat creation and restoration on the floodplain (A4, A6, A7, A8).

These projects will help to restore the landscape and re-connect the river with its floodplain, helping to reduce flood risk, improve water quality and increase biodiversity. There are also a number of reserve projects, which we will undertake should we bring in enough additional funding.
