Poole Harbour Updates

Poole Harbour catchment_62079

This page links to our work on the Poole Harbour catchment and the development of a pioneering Poole Harbour Nutrient Management Scheme (PHNMS) to reduce the amount of nutrients going into the harbour, whilst creating opportunities for farming, new income streams and improving the environment.

The PHNMS has been put together by the NFU and farmers to create a solution to the issue of nutrients from agriculture causing environmental damage to the internationally designated wildlife areas in Poole Harbour. The scheme is farmer led and managed and hopes to be an alternative to regulation and create new opportunities for income generation.

Here we will share briefing updates, reports, consultations and any useful communications that will help you understand what is happening. If you have any questions then please contact Louise Stratton, Dorset county adviser on 07811 160958 or email bG91aXNlLnN0cmF0dG9uQG5mdS5vcmcudWs=
