Erosion protection works at Kirknewton complete

5th, September 2012

Work is now complete on the comnstruction of a timber riverbank erosion protection structure on the College Burn at Kirknewton.

This project has been a partnership approach between Cheviot Futures and the Environment Agency, assisting the landowner and the local community to complete a 200m stretch of protection works in a sustainable manner.

Follow-up work this winter season will include integration of additional willow brash material and planted willow trees. This will be done as a project with National Park Rangers and Voluntary Rangers.
