Transforming the Trent Valley Event

Transforming the Trent Valley      An open invitation to all interested people and users of the Burton Washlands.


You are invited to an information sharing event on Wednesday 18th May 2022.

East Staffordshire Borough Council, in partnership with the Environment Agency, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and other public and private sector partners, launched a new shared Landscape Vision for the future of the Washlands in 2019. We are excited to announce that a range of habitat enhancements have now been designed though our Living Floodplains project, part of the Transforming the Trent Valley scheme, which will make this vision a reality. This will be a fantastic example of creating a landscape which can provide both support for wildlife and enjoyment for people in the same space. Some of these enhancements will start taking shape this summer.

If you would like to learn more about how we are making improvements to the habitats in the Burton Washlands, please join us for a drop in event between 4pm and 7pm on Wednesday 18th May 2022 in the Burton Library.

We would like to thank the various user groups of Burton Washlands who have provided important local knowledge on the project area and fed into the design phase for this project.

We would also like to thank our funders and partners, including the Environment Agency, The National Lottery Heritage Fund and East Staffordshire Borough Council.
