Sustainability Award Winners
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) named the work at Whixall and Bettisfield Mosses and Wem Moss, in north Shropshire, project of the year at its 2022 West Midlands Awards this month. It had already picked up the sustainability award before being chosen from the other category winners to take home the overall crown. Called the 'Marches Mosses BogLIFE Project', it has been delivered by WM Longreach, working with Natural England, Shropshire Wildlife Trust, Brian Killingworth, WSP and RAB Consultants. The ICE said that, after hundreds of years of exploitation, no-one in the UK had ever tried to restore bog edge habitat on this scale.
