RECOMMENDATION 27:
Defra, the Environment Agency and Natural
England should work with partners to
establish a programme through Catchment
Flood Management Plans and Shoreline
Management Plans to achieve greater
working with natural processes.
Pitt & land use
•
•
•
•
Rural Land Management
can help
•
retain water in soil
•
slow down water flow
•
reduce run-off
Wider scale benefits
remain unproven
Recognises local scale
benefits of better land use
Further studies needed
Uplands and flooding
Restoration of degraded blanket
bogs
Grip blocking
Changes of management
Reforestation

Environment Agency working in partnership with Natural
England and the National Trust –building on Moors for the
Future
Making Space for Water in the Upper
Derwent
Demonstration project
to show how land
management changes
(specifically moorland
restoration) can
contribute to reducing
flood risk at the local
scale

Strategic Overview
Upland work: Key Points
Have an open mind!
Understand the catchment
Monitor the impacts
Don’t dismiss the wider benefits
Make sure you have a good monitoring
strategy
Environment Agency
FRM GIA
Catchment Scale Research
Prioritise Research
Catchment Sensitive Farming objective
Natural England
Maximise FRM benefits
Deliver Flood storage
CFMP targeting
Key messages
 Small scale changes work locally
 Large scale impacts need more
investigation
 We will continue to prioritise catchment
scale research
