Perry Barr and Witton Scheme in Full Swing

The Environment Agency has just released the latest update on the Perry Barr and Witton flood risk management scheme.

The Agency has begun the wall improvements and will carry out river channel works through Witton, down to Gravelly Industrial Estate.

Construction work should be complete by July 2016.

There are approximately 1,400 properties at risk from this section of the River Tame, including 950 residential properties. The Environment Agency, supported by Birmingham City Council, is proposing to repair and improve existing defenses and build new ones.

This includes increasing the capacity of an existing flood storage area in the Sandwell Valley.

The Perry Barr and Witton scheme is 1 of 6 separate projects that take forward the recommendations of the River Tame flood risk management strategy.
