Natural Flood Management has started upstream of Allesley. In March the first woody debris dams were created in Elkin Wood with the help of volunteers from the local community.
Natural Flood Management can mean a range of things, from tree planting to creating leaky dams on rivers – but what they all have in common is that they are natural solutions which contribute towards reducing the impact of flooding and slowing the flow of water.

Many thanks to all the residents and others who came along to the very successful Community Information Event in early February 2019.
Over 160 people attended the event and had lots of really useful discussions and input into the project. Anyone who was not able to come along can still see a copy of the presentation that was given by downloading the presentation.
We will also be publishing more information here on this webpage and also through articles in the parish newsletter. You can also find an Allesley Love Your River ten point plan for caring for the river.
