New Flood Risk Management Scheme for Fazeley

The Environment Agency, with the support of Christopher Pincher MP, has officially opened the Fazeley section of the Lower Tame flood scheme. This work has reduced the risk of flooding to 250 properties in the area.

Construction of the £3.5million Fazeley section of the scheme began in June 2013 and was completed in August 2014. The works include new flood banks at Mayfair Drive as well as new flood walls along New Mill Lane, Coton Green Football Club, Brook End and parts of Coleshill Road.

The work has also involved raising the existing flood bank on Brook End and the Environment Agency has worked with Staffordshire County Council to reduce surface water flooding on Brook End and Coleshill Road.

The Fazeley section is one of the 4 sections that make up the Lower Tame flood risk management scheme. The others are in Coton, Kingsbury and Whitacre Heath, with a total scheme cost of £11million.

There were over 2,000 residential properties at risk from flooding in these areas from the River Tame before works began.
