The Humber estuary Outstrays to Skeffling River Welland improvement project 1 day ago   10:16

The Outstrays to Skeffling Managed Realignment Scheme is a joint initiative proposed by the Environment Agency (EA) and Associated British Ports (ABP) to create over 400 hectares (988 acres) of new mudflats and saltmarsh on the north bank of the Humber estuary, near Skeffling.
‘Managed realignment’ means altering the location of existing flood defences. In the case of Skeffling, this involves moving the embankment further inland to establish a new line of defence and then breaching the old embankment so that sea water can enter through the breach to facilitate the creation of intertidal habitat.
