River Wensum Strategy

The River Wensum Strategy (RWS) is now being delivered, with projects underway and some completed. Find out more about the projects in the action plan.

River Wensum Strategy vision

'"To breathe new life into the river by enhancing it for the benefit of all and increasing access to, and greater use of, this important asset. An enhanced river corridor, with its unique natural and historic environment, will once again play an important part in the growth and vitality of the city, strengthening the visitor economy and helping to give the city a competitive advantage in attracting inward investment."
