Alney Island Flood Defenses on Display

The Environment Agency has just announced that it will hold a drop-in event to discuss proposals for the Alney Island flood risk management scheme.

At the event, which will be held at Riverside Sports Club on Monday, 30 October, from 2pm until 7pm, Environment Agency’s project team will be on hand to provide information about the scheme.

Due to the location of Alney Island, the area is at risk from both fluvial and tidal flooding from the River Severn and the Environment Agency has been working closely with consultants, partners and the community on a range of technical options, including raising the existing defenses or building a new one.

Craig Barker, Project Manager at the Environment Agency said: “We have worked closely with our consultants and partners to develop potential options. We are looking forward to hearing what residents and businesses have to say about the proposals at the event on 30 October.”

According to the EA, the proposed plans have been created using the latest two-dimensional modelling technique capture more accurate detail of the area.
