Managing the Risk of Flooding in Calstock

The Environment Agency is carrying out ground investigation and topographic surveys to help develop suitable proposals to manage the risk of flooding in Calstock, Cornwall, from the River Tamar.

According to EA, the existing flood embankment provides an important role in reducing flood risk in Calstock, but surveys have shown it is in a poor condition.

The Environment Agency is exploring options to develop an affordable scheme to continue the standard of flood protection to properties within Calstock.

When proposals have been developed, EA will arrange a community drop-in session in Calstock. This is likely to be during the summer of 2017.

For now it is likely that options will consider moving the existing embankment inland, away from the river, where it will be under less pressure from erosion. In this case, it may be necessary to permanently divert the existing permissive pathway, to follow the line of the new embankment.
