The Environment Agency wants to alter 150 hectares (370 acres) at Arne Moors in Poole Harbour, Dorset, to allow more salt water into the area.

Inter-tidal habitats, including salt marshes, are being lost due to rising sea levels, the agency said.

Part of the work includes building a tidal embankment.
