Whats next in Stage 1
The design Team will verify the findings of the CFRAM Assessment and make updates where necessary. The team will create computer models to simulate the river network and the models can also be used to determine the effectiveness of any proposed flood relief measures.
A variety of surveys will be carried out over the next number of months which will include topographical, ecological and environment surveys. Landowners may be contacted to arrange access to their lands.
Various options will be considered to manage the flood risk in the area. These may include flood walls, embankments, upgrades to the channel/culverts on the rivero flood diversion channels.
All options considered will seek to balance the economic, social, cultural heritage and environmental impacts of the scheme. The placement and routing of any works associated with the scheme will have careful regard for all local constraints. The needs of any affected landowners will be incorporated into the scheme design where possible.
