Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


Deculverting through Parloes Park and naturalisation. Bank improvements and creation of features, creation of associated wetland areas in Goresbrook Park. Flooding of Parsloes occurs during intense rainfall events, the manholes blow their lids. Flood risk could be massively improved. The Gores brook is culverted through Parloes, so this would perhaps have priority.
