Graveney Flood Alleviation Scheme Shortlist

Closes 30 Nov 2019

Opened 12 Mar 2018

Overview

We have identified more than 700 properties at risk of flooding in and around Graveney. We are working with both Croydon and Lambeth Councils to develop a flood alleviation scheme to reduce this risk to 340 homes along the River Graveney and Norbury Brook in Thornton Heath and Norbury. In February 2018, we held a very successful drop-in for residents living around the parks to give us their views on the different options. At the drop-in, we presented our shortlist of options.  These flood alleviation scheme options were as follows:

  • a flood storage area in Norbury Park with restoration of a natural river channel
  • a flood storage area in Thornton Heath Recreation Ground
  • combined storage at Norbury Park and Thornton Heath Recreation Ground.

Gathering local opinions and knowledge helped us shape our preferred option and refine our shortlist. We have collated and reviewed their feedback.  We have also taken feedback from Croydon and Lambeth Councils to develop our preferred option further.  Following this feedback, we have concluded that our preferred option is:

  • a flood storage area in Norbury Park with restoration of a natural river channel

Details of the preferred option are in the document below.
