New Work at Hickling Broad a ‘Win-win‘ for Wildlife and Visitors

The Broads Authority project involves creating new reed islands and restoring badly eroded reed beds, while also dredging 3,500 cubic metres from the channel that traverses the broad.

Much of the material dredged from the bottom will be used in the construction of islands and in restoring banks. The dredging work is intended to help maintain water access to the broad’s boatyard and pub, as well as Hickling Sailing Club.

Andrea Kelly, a senior ecologist with the Broads Authority, said: “This project is a win-win for wetland wildlife and the people who enjoy it, as well as the businesses around the River Thurne area of the Broads.”
