Wetlands
 

Do you need to create a wetland? JPR Environmental has extensive experience in the design and construction of wetlands ranging in size from school ponds to large lakes, reedbeds and entire nature reserves.

We can advise on a project from the conception through to the design and hydrogeology. We give accurate construction estimates for cost and timescales.

JPR Environmental will manage or undertake the construction phase, depending on the size of project, providing supervision to earthwork contractors to realise designs. We can also provide the necessary ecological services for any wetland project as we work in close association with an ecological consultancy.

Post construction, JPR Environmental can supply native aquatic and marginal plants for your pond or wetland. We also offer a planting service for larger projects, please call us for a competitive quote.

We can assess existing wetlands and write management plans to ensure maximum benefit for wildlife. We also undertake ongoing practical management of wetland areas or can organise and supervise local agricultural contractors to carry out large scale conservation tasks with due sensitivity.

If you are a landowner with a permanently or seasonally waterlogged or marshy area on your land, you could be eligible for government grants to create a wetland.

 

 
 
JPR are able to identify funding sources and even helping with applications for funding from a number of sources including:


Higher Level Environmental Stewardship payments for creation and ongoing management of wetlands (projects qualify through their benefit to biodiversity)
Environment Agency (projects qualify if they alleviate or prevent flooding)
Local drainage boards (again, projects qualify if they alleviate or prevent flooding)
Local wildlife trusts (projects qualify through their benefit to biodiversity)
 
 

 

As an example, the wetland creation project at Hartpury in Gloucestershire was funded by Gloucestershire First, Rural Renaissance and the Gloucestershire Environmental Trust. It is now attracting a wide range of species, including otter, on what was once an empty piece of boggy land.
