Have your say on River Wensum strategy

Published on Tuesday, 15th August 2017

Enhancing the River Wensum has been at the heart of a project to develop a strategy aimed at breathing new life into the river corridor.

Wednesday 26 July saw the publication of the draft strategy which combined with the start of a public consultation on the document.

The launch of the consultation included an open house event at Blackfriars Hall which featured display boards illustrating main sections of the draft strategy we’d like to get views on along with the chance to speak to some of the partners involved in the project. 

The project’s official spokesman, Councillor Mike Stonard, cabinet member for sustainable and inclusive growth, said: “The River Wensum is such an important feature of Norwich which needs to be championed along with raising awareness about all the fantastic benefits it can bring to our vibrant city.

“The draft strategy reflects various aspirations and sets out possible ways to revitalise the river corridor with improved access and a high quality environment so we very much want to hear people's views on it.

“Such improvements have the potential to contribute to the city’s regeneration by attracting private sector investment as well as making it an even better place to live, work and spend leisure time.”

The draft strategy and questionnaire will be available on our website from Wednesday 26 July at www.norwich.gov.uk/riverwensum

The consultation will run from 26 July to 15 September.
