UK: Public Hearing Scheduled for Stanhope Flood Protection

The Environment Agency will be holding a public drop-in event on Monday 11 August at the Durham Dales Centre in Castle Gardens from 3pm to 7pm, giving local people the chance to find out more about the River Wear flood defense project.

The Environment Agency is proposing to raise some sections of its defenses on the river to improve flood protection to 100 homes that are at risk.

Chris Wotherspoon, project manager for the Environment Agency, said: “This work will improve flood defenses in Stanhope to provide a more uniform standard of protection from the River Wear. There are defenses along this part of the River Wear but these offer different standards of protection, so we are looking to raise some defenses and improve their general condition.”

Anyone who wants to know more about the scheme is invited to our public drop-in on the 11th. Our flood risk and project officers will be there to answer any questions.

This year’s project, designed using new modeling data, will improve these defenses even further. They will be able to withstand river levels even higher than those seen in the 2005 incident.
