Waver Wampool Water Level Management Board Proposals

This website has been set up to provide information about the development of a proposed Water Level Management Board for the Waver Wampool area.  Following Defra guidance prioritising the reduction of flood risk to people and properties, the Environment Agency is withdrawing from the operation of four land drainage pumping stations in the Waver Wampool and funding for channel maintenance has also been reduced. One option for managing water levels and maintaining drainage channels and infrastructure in the future is to establish a Water Level Management Board – a new local public authority with powers to manage water levels on your behalf.

In July and August 2015, a consultation was held to determine whether there is support for the proposed Water Level Management Board.  For details of the consultation including a copy of the consultation report please go to the Consultation Details page or click on the following link:  Waver Wampool WLMB Consultation.  Please see the latest news section https://waverwampoolwlmg.wordpress.com/latest-news-2/ for information about the Environment Agency’s recent extension to the deadline for withdrawal to 31st October 2018 and the possible next steps in the process.

With any questions about the proposals please contact the Project Officer, Veronica Waller, on  Tel: 07587 037088 or e mail:  veronica.waller@nfu.org.uk.
