Project - River Holme Connections

Nature’s Holme

In Progress

Summary


Nature`s Holme will create nature-rich corridors along nearly 22km of the River Holme in Huddersfield.

Background


We’re working with cross-sector partners including South Pennines Park, Palladium, University of Huddersfield, landowners & farmers.  The pilot, one of 22 across the country to receive government funding through the Landscape Recovery scheme, and backed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) will involve groups of farmers and land managers working together to deliver environmental benefits across farmed and rural landscapes – improving soils, flood alleviation and water retention, increasing biodiversity, carbon storage, and improved water quality.
