Pangbourne Community Wetland Project

Pangbourne Community Wetland Project

Mend the Gap is supporting the Pang Community Wetland Project, lead by ARK, towards their planning permissions costs to begin the project.

The Project

The Pang Wetland Community project, led by Action for River Kennet, plans to create a new wetland habitat, address localised flooding, secure public access and increase biodiversity along the River Pang.

The project will include installation of a leaky dam on the bank of the river Pang to reduce erosion, create a deeper pond, create areas of wet grassland which can store flood water, as well as creation of a board walk and circular path to increase access for visitors.
