Flooding in Fletcher Moss Park

There have been a lot of problems with flooding in Fletcher Moss park over the last three winters. The main path from Millgate Lane to Stenner Lane has been impassable for long periods. A lot of the flooding is due to a blocked culvert under Stenner Lane, which is the only means of rain water draining from the park.

We have spent a lot of time in talks with the Council and with the Environment Agency, trying to determine who is responsible and what is to be done. A report on the Environment Agency management of the area (which is a flood storage basin) was due on 15th February 2020, but it has not yet been published.
