Plans to improve Burton's flood defences

Drop in sessions are being held this week for people to find out more about work to Burton's flood defences.

It'll see upgrades to the 9km of existing defences that already protect more than 7,000 homes and businesses in the town. The work will also see a further 3,358 properties benefit from increased protection.

The work is due to start in early 2019, with a completion date in early 2021 and will enable further transformation of the town centre to allow it to become more sustainable.

Drop-in sessions are being held at a number of locations across the town where Environment Agency staff will be on hand to discuss the scheme as well as to spread awareness about the need to be more flood resilient.

Mark Swain, who heads the Environment Agency’s Staffordshire flood risk team, said:

These sessions are a really important means for us to explain our work as well as to listen to residents. We would really like as many people as possible to attend one of our sessions so that they can discuss the exciting plans we have in place for Burton.

Sessions are being held as follows:

Monday 6 November (5pm to 7pm) - Branston Golf Club pavilion
Tuesday 7 November (5pm to 7pm) - Riverside Hotel
Thursday 9 November (11am to 2pm) - Burton Library
Thursday 9 November (3pm to 6pm) - Meadowside Leisure Centre
Monday 13 November (5pm to 7pm) - Tesco, St Peter’s Bridge
