River Wensum Strategy

The River Wensum Strategy (RWS) is being delivered with many projects underway and some completed. Find out more about the projects in the delivery 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."

About the strategy

Norwich City Council led the development of this joint strategy working with the Broads Authority, Norfolk County Council, the Environment Agency and the Wensum River Parkway Partnership, as the River Wensum Strategy Partnership (RWSP). After extensive public consultation the strategy was launched on 13 June 2018.

If you would like to make any suggestions about ideas for helping to deliver the strategy you can get in touch with the River Wensum Strategy project team at Please note that the RWSP will need to consider any suggestions in context of the existing Delivery Plan, resources and priorities.
