Ribble Life Together Summary

Posted on

Ribble Life Together is an ambitious project which is bringing together a host of organisations  to deliver activities that will significantly improve the Ribble Catchment for residents, visitors and wildlife.

The project has researched and developed (May 2015- November 2016) a range of activities using the extensive data and evidence we have been collecting. This data has helped us to carefully select the sites and solutions that will have the greatest possible positive environmental, social or economic impacts.

From April 2017 we will be putting this research in to practise throughout our planned delivery phase. During this time we will undertaking a range of projects with activities including the creation of woodlands and wetlands, removing and modifying weirs and increasing habitat connectivity.

The Ribble Life Together project will also work to improve access and recreation opportunities and increase people’s knowledge and understanding of their local river’s natural, social and cultural heritage.

All this can be summed up in our four key aims!

  • Improve  the condition of the river and tributaries
  • Create  knowledge among communities & visitors
  • Educate  people about river heritage and ecology
  • Advance  the way the catchment is managed
