We understand that work is to start on the Parrett river bank and the wall to protect flood prone properties on Whatley at Cocklemoor on Monday 8th Sept, and 5 spaces will be lost from the Car Park for about three weeks because of contractors equipment.

Solar Farm Open Morning

As you will be aware, British Solar Renewables are arranging a visit morning to the proposed Solar Park on Aller Court Farm between 1030 – 1200 on Sat 6 Sep 14. Visitors should park their cars in the playground car park and walk to the meeting point outside the church gates where someone will be there to meet you (map attached). We ask that you arrive at 10.30 and that for Health & Safety reasons you do not enter the farmyard. You will be escorted to site where there will be other members of staff to meet you, explain the proposed layout and answer questions. After the visit, you will be escorted back to the meeting place. Although the weather forecast is not fully understood at this time, we would like to suggest that you dress prepared for wet weather and wear suitable footwear for walking through fields.

There is a link to a PDF of the meeting point and car parking here.

EA Dredging Briefing #24

The latest news (8th August) on the Parrett and Tone dredging project is available here.

EA are planning to hold a community open morning at the dredging compound in Burrowbridge on Saturday 30 August. More details will follow. They continue to hold Wednesday drop-ins at Gillards (Samways Farm) from 16:30 until 18:30. Look for the Land and Water sign on Riverside, Burrowbridge.

The remnants of Hurricane Bertha, expected at the weekend, are unlikely to result in flood events, as the high water level is a metre below that seen in February. The situation will be intensively monitored.
