Brief for consultants

The brief is to cover a specific reach of river Blythe SSSI, reach 10, and part of Cuttle Brook, from the Temple Balsall Nature Reserve to the river Blythe confluence.

This brief has been written by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, which is undertaking work on behalf of Environment Agency and Natural England. The work is part of the implementation of the River Restoration Plan for river Blythe SSSI, produced in 2017 by JBA consulting.

Natural England and Environment Agency have been working to address failure of the river Blythe SSSI. They commissioned a River Restoration Plan in 2017, and following significant input from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust (WWT), commissioned an Implementation Plan, Communication and Monitoring Plans from WWT to progress the plans into action.

One of the key themes for the River Restoration Plan is control of invasive non -native species: ‘Eradicate non-native invasive riverside plants and undertake a programme of removing them whenever they re-occur’.
