This theme seeks to conserve or restore the built and natural features that make up the distinctive character of the Marsh.

Projects that will contribute to delivering this theme are:


Shingle on the Cusp
Helping to restore vegetated shingle habitat across the Dungeness foreland, through the creation of windbreaks and scientific trial plots using a variety of methods to promote plant re-colonisation and also the control of invasive species to promote a diversity of habitats.

Blue Lanes
Creating optimal ditch conditions for wildlife by balancing the maintenance needs for drainage with the maintenance needs for biodiversity. This is through both physical works and educational means.

Green Lanes for Bumblebees
Implementing bumblebee-friendly practices on Romney Marsh by engaging with highway contractors, landowners and volunteers to promote networks of wildflower rich habitats and provide support for this with three trainee placements.

Monitoring of the Marsh
Recording and monitoring key species and habitats across the Marsh by providing training and support for local volunteers and through this improve the knowledge of biodiversity on Romney Marsh.

Heritage, Geomorphology and Land use
Informing local and owners of archaeological features on their land and helping them to understand their value and protect them for the future.
