Natural rivers and green corridors
Birmingham City Council has recently been successful in securing funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to deliver the Natural Rivers and Green Corridors project. The project will improve woodlands, grasslands, wetlands and watercourses along the River Rea and its tributaries in south-west Birmingham and the River Tame in west Birmingham.
As well as improving habitats for wildlife, the project will benefit communities by making local green spaces more attractive and encouraging healthy lifestyles.
It will run until July 2021 and will improve the habitat value of 150 hectares of public open space and associated watercourses.
This project is a partnership between Birmingham City Council, the Environment Agency and the Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country. The project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
