Severn Stoke Flood Protection Scheme Progresses

A permanent flood protection being designed for Severn Stoke is making vital behind-the-scenes progress following a meeting hosted by West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin.

The local flood action group met up with experts from the Environment Agency last week to discuss progress on the proposals, which will see bunds and flood gates constructed to protect the village and the vital A38.

Technical experts carried out survey at the site last year and the community is now ready to move forward with the scheme.

Commenting the latest developments, Harriett said: “The scheme is making progress and it was really helpful to get everyone in one room to agree the best way to proceed.”

“The scheme requires the use of private land so there has been a lot of work collaborating with the land owners to get the right scheme in place.

“The group has also been working with the district and county council flood teams and the formal plans will soon be published.”

Harriett already held a series of meeting with the community group, the Environment Agency and the land owners to agree a plan of action.
