The River Dargle Flood Defence Scheme was been completed in October 2017. This is a very important piece of infrastructure which aims to protect our town and its people.
The scheme comprised a variety of flood defences, including construction of new sections of earth embankments, demolition and rebuilding of river walls with extensive stone facing, channel excavation, regrading and riverbank strengthening.
A range of landscape treatments in and adjacent to the river are to mitigate the impacts of the scheme on the local environment along the river corridor.
