Cheviot Futures Project Wins National Park Award!

13th, January 2014

Peter Stott, of Elilaw Farm near Netherton, has won a Northumberland National Park Award for his role in the Cheviot Futures project on the Netherton Burn. The award celebrates natural resources innovation and Cheviot Futures is very proud to have worked on an award winning partnership project.

The aim of the project has been to install a number of Natural Flood Management features on the burn in order to reduce flooding further downstream. There have been numerous partners in this project but nothing would have been possible without the agreement and participation of Peter.

Further information on the Netherton Burn Runoff Management Works can be found in a detailed case study document on the project page link below.
