When residents of Stroud were offered a concrete dam as a solution to their flooding problems, councillors and the community pushed for a more natural solution.
Slow the flow and store more. That’s the essence of the Stroud Rural Sustainable Drainage (Rural SuDS) project in Gloucestershire, an innovative natural flood management project working to reduce flood risk and restore biodiversity throughout the catchment of the river Frome.
This article in the MJ (the management journal for local authority business) on 20th August describes the project in more detail (see page 12).
JPR Environmental are proud to have been involved in the project with our work at Horsley.
