Revitalising the River Aire to pre-industrial glory

How do Rivers Trusts undertake large scale river restoration projects to revitalise our urban rivers?

By working together central government and local charities can creatively access funding for river restoration.

Our Chair of Trustees, Geoff Roberts, explores the lessons learned in the development of our DNAire partnership project in a guest blog with the Environment Agency.

The project first took shape when Martin Slater (then Environment Agency Environment, Planning and Engagement Manager for Yorkshire Area) and I bumped into each other at a copying machine back in 2016, but little did we know we were conceiving a project that would consume us for the next few years.
