Wildlife habitat improvements (Stort Valley Phase 2)

In this part of the project an area of reed-bed plus 3 new pools will be created adjacent to the paths improved in phase 1. An area of shallow open water will also be created in a new conservation area, and the vehicle access bridge on to one of the meadows rich in wild flowers will be widened to facilitate the proper maintenance regime of cutting and collecting necessary to prevent nutrient levels rising and consequent loss of biodiversity.

In conjunction with the Essex Biodiversity Project, funding of a further 44,000 was secured in October 2011 from Veolia (Landfill Tax funds) with 10% match funding coming from the Stansted Airport Community Trust for phase 2 of the project. It is hoped that work can proceed in Autumn 2012.
