Lydbrook: Report Looks Into Stopping Flooding

People living in fear of flooding in the Forest of Dean are finding out if anything can be done to protect their homes.


A number of properties in Upper Lydbrook flooded back in November 2012 and are still at risk now. 

Forest of Dean District Council, together with Gloucester County Council, has commissioned an Options Appraisal to identify possible works to the Greathough Brook watercourse. 

A presentation of the findings will be held for residents at the Memorial Hall in Lydbrook, starting at 6.30pm on Thursday 16 January. 

Representatives will attend the meeting from Forest of Dean District Council, Gloucestershire County Council, Forestry Commission, Environment Agency, Gloucestershire Highways and Atkins, who will be available to discuss particular issues following the presentation.
