Ways of adapting to climate change on the Somerset Levels can be explored with a new web-based app. The app is part of the Adapting the Levels project, which is backed by Somerset Rivers Authority. Its purpose is to help local people and organisations turn ideas into plans for action, particularly as regards flooding and drought.
Farmers are being invited to bid in Somerset’s biggest ever auction for works to reduce flooding, boost agriculture and improve the environment. The auction will run online from Monday 1 March to Monday 15 March. Grants for up to 12 different measures are available, from a total funding pot of £60,000.
People living in and around Wedmore and Langport are invited to take part in a major new Somerset climate change project called Adapting the Levels. Come to the Ridgway Hall in Langport between 10am and 2pm on Saturday 29 February. Children and young people are welcome to attend. A similar event in Wedmore at the start of February was a popular success.
