Wetlands and Woodland in the Wylye and Nadder valley
Funding and support is available to create farm wetlands and woodland that improves water quality in the River Nadder and Wylye headwaters.
Wetlands and targeted woodland are effective at reducing phosphorus loads. Wiltshire Council will fund these options to mitigate the nutrient contribution of housing development lower down the Hampshire Avon catchment.
EnTrade is experienced in nutrient management. Along with our project partners Wiltshire Wildlife Trust and Blacksheep Countryside Management we can provide you with the information and support you need to develop effective wetlands and woodland and be paid to create and maintain them.
If you have suitable land within the opportunity areas highlighted on the maps below, or on nearby sites that you believe meet the criteria, we invite you to take part in the scheme by proposing woodland and wetland locations, providing some basic farm information (so that we can estimate phosphorus reductions) and bidding your estimated price to create and maintain them.
Your bid will be treated as an expression of interest which Wiltshire Council will use to decide whether to negotiate a detailed price / design for a formal contract. You need to provide your expression of interest by no later than Friday 22nd January 2021. You can amend or withdraw your proposals at any time on the EnTrade platform up to that date.

We are on hand to support you in understanding the options we are looking for and tailoring them to your land - please get in contact with any questions or queries.
