2 The Uplands and Flooding Amy Parrott: Policy Advisor, Flood and Coastal Risk Management Karen Eynon: Moors for the Future Project Manager, Making Space for Water Project

3 Policy Background State of Science Policy Future

5 RECOMMENDATION 27: Defra, the Environment Agency and Natural England should work with partners to establish a programme through Catchment Flood Management Plans and Shoreline Management Plans to achieve greater working with natural processes.

6 Pitt & land use Rural Land Management can help retain water in soil slow down water flow reduce run-off Wider scale benefits remain unproven Recognises local scale benefits of better land use Further studies needed

7 Uplands and flooding Restoration of degraded blanket bogs Grip blocking Changes of management Reforestation

10 Defra multi-objective projects Moors for the FutureHolnicote Slowing the Flow in Pickering

11 Karen Eynon Making Space for Water Project Manager Making Space for Water in the Upper Derwent

12 Environment Agency working in partnership with Natural England and the National Trust –building on Moors for the Future

13 Making Space for Water in the Upper Derwent Demonstration project to show how land management changes (specifically moorland restoration) can contribute to reducing flood risk at the local scale

14 Kinder Scout – The Edge

15 Restoring the Edge site Large size Soil chemistry intervention (lime and fertiliser) Nurse grass crop Physical works Heather brash Access difficulties Much winter work!

20 Upland work: Key Points Have an open mind! Understand the catchment Monitor the impacts Don’t dismiss the wider benefits Make sure you have a good monitoring strategy

21 Environment Agency FRM GIA Catchment Scale Research Prioritise Research Catchment Sensitive Farming objective Natural England Maximise FRM benefits Deliver Flood storage CFMP targeting

22 Key messages  Small scale changes work locally  Large scale impacts need more investigation  We will continue to prioritise catchment scale research
