Ponteland Flood Alleviation Scheme Consultation

Closes 22 Feb 2019

Opened 15 Jan 2019


We are consulting on the proposed list of options for reducing flood risk in Ponteland.

Following the consultation, we will use this information combined with other factors such as technical constraints, landowner views and economics to help us select either a single preferred option or a combination of options to then implement.

Why We Are Consulting

We are consulting early to give people the opportunity to share their views on the list of potential options, as well as to share information about Ponteland that we may not already have.

We would also like to get further information on the potential environmental or recreational opportunities we could provide as part of the scheme.

In addition we want your ideas on how we can manage various parts of the scheme such as materials management, funding and construction.
