RSPB to Host Perry Barr Information Event

The Environment Agency together with RSPB Sandwell Valley and local RSPB volunteer, Andy Purcell, will present further information about Phase 2 of the Perry Barr and Witton Flood Risk Management Scheme.

Attendees are invited along to RSPB at Tanhouse Avenue, from 5pm, October 11, where they will have the opportunity to see how the EA is progressing with the construction work in Sandwell Valley Country Park, reported the Environment Agency.

Following the presentation, officials will highlight progress to date and next steps, followed by a Question and Answer Session at the end.

Josh Harris, Environment Agency project lead for the scheme said: “We have been working closely with our partners and the local community, to ensure that we keep everyone informed. The drone footage will provide a very interesting aspect to the information we give, and we look forward to speaking to people and listening to any feedback that they may have to offer.

Cathy Taylor, Site Manager at RSPB Sandwell Valley said: “We are looking forward to the Environment Agency sharing project updates with our team and the public at the RSPB Sandwell Valley visitor center. We are also looking forward to showing the Environment Agency our newly improved marsh as this work was made possible thanks to their supporting it as an environmental improvement associated with the Perry Barr and Witton Flood Risk Management Scheme.

The scheme, costing just over £32 million, is part of the Environment Agency’s program of £2.6 billion investment into flood defenses across the country. The first phase of the project was completed in spring 2017 and the whole scheme is due to be completed in spring 2020.
