UK: Officials Invite Feedback on Exeter’s Flood Defence Scheme

People are being asked to offer feedback on the environmental impact of the first stage of Exeter’s multi-million pound flood defence scheme.

The scheme is being jointly funded by the Environment Agency, Exeter City Council and Devon County Council, and ultimately will reduce the risk of flooding for over 3,200 homes and businesses across the city.

It is planned to construct the scheme in two phases over the next three years, with the majority of the channel clearance works being undertaken in the first phase, followed by the bulk of the flood defence structures in the second.

The partnership plan to start work on phase one of the scheme soon. There will be some preparatory vegetation clearance work over this winter, with construction work starting in the spring of 2014.

This work is likely to have positive and negative impacts on the local environment.
