5. Habitat Improvement River Colne Oxhey Park

Aim: Improve water quality

Water body: River Colne
Project description

In order for the River Colne at Oxhey Park to better perform as a high quality habitat, a project is proposed to introduce a series of brushwood berms along the South bank and undertake some light maintenance works along the existing berms on the North Bank.

Flood Defence Consent has been granted, 

Introducing a greater abundance of this habitat will benefit local wildlife as well as increase channel sinuosity, helping to promote scouring flows that will help clean the river bed. The project will also involve the hinding of small willows on the Colne's North bank.
