The Phase 2a flood mitigation measures undertaken on and adjacent to Mill Brook at China Meadow are now complete.
The on-site teams, agencies and partners are to be congratulated.
David Brown, Senior Flood Risk Management Advisor with the Environment Agency, said:
'The commitment of multiple agencies to work together and explore nature based solutions alongside traditional flood defences, is a powerful component of our response to the Climate Emergency'.
The 3 earthwork bunds, appropriate drainage systems, seepage barriers and associate landscaping will complement the Phase 1 works which were completed in 2016.
Flood routes will be reduced by Phase 1 works and (particularly) Phase 2a attenuation works upstream.
Watch this space for updates and for drone footage which will be available shortly.
