20 Year Strategy

Windrush Floodplain Meadow Restoration


Windrush Floodplain Meadows Restoration (2022-2024)

This is a collaborative project between the Cluster, the Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group, the Floodplain Meadows Partnership, Glorious Cotswold Grasslands and the Windrush Catchment Partnership and funded by Farming in Protected Landscapes (FiPL): Tapping into these expert networks we have compiled data across farms to inform floodplain meadow habitat restoration.

About the work to date:

Existing data on species rich floodplain grassland in the Windrush floodplain and its tributaries has been collated and mapped in early 2023 before a botanical survey took place in the summer to fill in data gaps.

The recommendations made will then support bespoke work with each landowner to restore the floodplain meadows at five flagship sites. Using all the learning from these five sites, we will produce a final strategy for comprehensive floodplain meadow management and restoration throughout the Windrush floodplain.
