The Rodley Nature Reserve is likely to be affected significantly by the above scheme.
The proposals involve the construction of a moveable weir at the scrubland end of the Reserve together with a widening of the river bank. This weir will be lowered at times of flood conditions to slow down the flow of the river and protect downstream locations by utilising the flood plain which includes the Reserve.
The Environment Agency has set up a series of drop in consultation events as detailed below – please feel free to attend and find out more about the proposals and how it is likely to affect the Reserve. Feedback and comments would be welcome via email – firstname.lastname@example.org
