Award for Barton Broad

Clear Water 2000 was a partnership involving the Broads Authority, Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Anglian Water, the Environment Agency, East of England Development Agency and Norfolk Environmental Waste Services, with involvement by a wide range of stakeholder and community groups.

Andy Brown, chief executive of English Nature, said: “The Barton Broad Clear Water project is a fantastic example of what can be achieved by bringing together different groups - sailors, fishermen, birdwatchers, walkers and ecologists to work out how to improve the broad.

“The results speak for themselves - clearer water, more aquatic plants, otters and kingfishers.”
