New measures are being taken to prevent further damage to the banks of the River Stour.
Barriers are being installed to stop vehicleschurning up saltmarsh and mudflats which provide a valuable habitat to local wildlife.
The land's a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Protection Area.
The banks are home to birds such as black-tailed godwits, brent geese and shelduck which use the area for feeding and roosting.
The Stour and Orwell Estuaries Management Group has developed the initiative with the support of organisations including Natural England, RSPB, and Essex County Council.
Up to now, vehicles and boats have been able to gain access to the area to launch boats - even though there is no legal launch point at the site.
The barriers will cost £4,000 with funding coming from the AONB’s sustainable development fund and The Crown Estate.
