Floodplain reconnection

Floodplain reconnection

19th May 2020

We have recently completed the removal of this failing flood bank. Due to increased heavier floods the flood bank is over topped in very heavy rain. It is also starting to collapse and wash out .

We have removed this flood bank and regraded the surrounded land and planted as a wild flower wet meadow. By removing this flood bank the adjacent land will store flood water temporarily but will also allow improved natural drainage of the land once the flood subsides.
