Hickling wetland creation
The Broads Authority is working with partners to create and enhance wetland habitats around Hickling Broad.
The partnership includes the Environment Agency, Natural England, Norfolk Wildlife Trust, the Broads Internal Drainage Board and Broadland Environmental Services Limited working together to enhance flood protection and provide wildlife habitats for rare and threatened wildlife.
Two separate schemes are currently being developed:
- Creating reedbed, constructing setback banks and raising water levels on the south side of Hickling Broad
- Creating reedbed, constructing setback banks, raising water levels and improving access within Norfolk Wildlife Trust's nature reserve on the north side of Hickling Broad
