Washlands Project

East Staffordshire Borough Council, in partnership with the Environment Agency and other public and private sector partners, has launched a new shared Landscape Vision for the future of the Washlands.

The Washlands is an extensive piece of natural land that follows the river through to the heart of Burton upon Trent. The vision, informed by consultation with key stakeholders and the local community, addresses how to best balance the regular flooding of the area with the need for public access and recreation, whilst promoting nature conservation and a more environmentally sustainable approach to green space management.
