Detailed designs have been announced for the Flood Alleviation Scheme proposed for Eastern Marlow.
Buckinghamshire Council is proposing a Flood Alleviation Scheme in Eastern Marlow along the Newt Ditch and are now sharing the detailed designs which have been informed from feedback received from the local community and key stakeholders on the proposals during spring 2021.
Buckinghamshire Council would now like to hear the views from local residents and businesses on their detailed designs. An online workshop for the local community is being held on Tuesday 7th September 2021 between 7.30pm and 9.00pm on Microsoft Teams. Anyone wishing to register for the workshop can do so by contacting [email protected].
The Scheme aims to reduce flood risk to 41 residential and 9 non-residential properties in this historically flood prone area and demonstrates the commitment of Buckinghamshire Council to managing flood risk. The proposed solution is focused around the culvert under Dedmere Road from Fieldhouse Way through to the open channel section either side of the A404.
The Council will submit a planning application at the end of 2021 and construction work will start in 2022 phased over 2 years, subject to planning permission and funding approval.
Peter Strachan, Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment at Buckinghamshire Council, said: ‘We’re committed to managing flood risk, and this project is one of the various key projects aimed at managing flood risk across the county.
I’d encourage local residents and businesses to have their say on the proposed Flood Alleviation Scheme in Eastern Marlow by joining our online workshop on Tuesday 7[th] September . Any feedback we receive will help us to amend our plans, where possible.‘
