A Natural Flood Management project will be starting soon in the Upper Sherbourne River (upstream from Allesley). 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 slow the flow of water.
Many thanks to all the residents and others who came along to the very successful event Community Information Event in early February. Over 160 people attended the event and had lots of really useful discussions and input into the project. We will be following leads that were generated on the day but still welcome contact from anyone who has information that they feel might be helpful in informing our plans going forward. Anyone who was not able to come along can still see a copy of the presentation that was given by downloading the PDF file of 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.
