River Leen Access and Biodiversity Study
Let us know your views about how we can improve the use of the River Leen corridor for leisure, enjoyment and commuting. We have developed a study in partnership and have made it available here for you to consider our thoughts of how we'd like to bring about improvements.
The purpose of this document is to set out a vision and action plan to raise awareness of the Leen corridor within the Nottingham City area. It will aid the coordination of projects with complimentary objectives in order to attract funding to develop a multi-user path and improve biodiversity along the banks and watercourse of the Leen.
The document is still live and wider buy in from partners is needed. This will allow more funding avenues for schemes to be explored and for the Leen to fulfil its potential within the City.
Feedback from stakeholders is welcome. The document can be accessed from the link on the top right of the page.

Thanks to funding from the Greater Nottingham Growth Point and Nottingham City Council two new sections of multi-user paths for cyclists and pedestrians are to be constructed alongside the River Leen within the City.
Work will start on building the paths early in November. Once completed they will provide local residents with improved access to local services via a pleasant walking and cycling route alongside the Leen as well as linking in with existing sections of riverside path.
The works, which will take place near David Lane in Basford and Highbury Vale, will improve the routes alongside the River as well as opening up a circular walk.
In addition to the new paths the Council is working in partnership with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, which will be carrying out improvements to help the water vole and crayfish populations along the Leen.
