Wells MP Tours Flood Protection and Coastal Projects

Wells MP James Heappey last week completed a series of tours with the Environment Agency to see the work being done to reduce the risk of flooding within the Wells Constituency.

On previous visits, Mr Heappey had visited the coastal flood defenses at Burnham-on-Sea, Berrow and Brean as well as key sites on the River Axe.

Last week, he joined the Environment Agency’s regional leaders on the River Brue.

The Environment Agency showed Mr Heappey the challenges of managing the Brue from its ancient banks constructed centuries ago by the monks of Glastonbury through to the competing demands of environmental legislation which too often protects fish and wildlife ahead of the neighbouring farm land.

They also discussed the new funding arrangements since the establishment of the Somerset Rivers Authority.
