Much Wenlock Flood Protection Scheme Completed

A flood scheme which will reduce flood risk to more than 140 properties in Much Wenlock, Shropshire, was officially launched on 10 November, 2017, the Environment Agency said in their latest release.

The project, carried out by the contractor Griffiths, was supported by EA and funded through Flood Defense Grant in Aid by the Severn and Wye Regional Flood and Coastal Committee, local developer contributions and Shropshire Council.

Dave Edwards, EA Senior Adviser, said: “The Much Wenlock flood alleviation scheme is a fantastic example of what can be achieved through partnership working. Much Wenlock has a long history of flooding so it’s great to see the finished project protecting properties, businesses and roads in the town. We’ll continue to work closely with both the council and the community in the future.”

Steve Davenport, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “I’m delighted that work on this important scheme has now been completed, and that dozens of homes and businesses in Much Wenlock are now at far less risk from flooding than they have been in the past.”

Between 2015 to 2021, Government is investing £2.5 billion in flood and coastal erosion risk management projects which will reduce the risk of flooding from rivers, the sea, groundwater and surface water for at least 300,000 homes.
