Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


The Lustrum Beck catchment (Map 1) is located in Stockton-on-Tees and is a tributary of the Tees. It has been identified through an ISIS-TUFLOW model that over 150 properties are at risk of flooding in the catchment within 2 main areas: Oxbridge and Browns Bridge. For these sites, the Lustrum Beck Flood Alleviation Scheme (FAS) has been split into 2 phases. Phase 1 is well underway and consists of constructing more traditional flood defences in the urban area of the catchment. Phase 2 is currently in the development stage and will involve storing water at a range of scales in the upstream catchment area using natural processes to attenuate water. This case study focuses on Phase 2 in the Lustrum Beck catchment and how natural processes are being incorporated into the scheme to reduce downstream risk. The model used identified that a total storage area of around 100,000m³ of storage within the local catchment area could reduce the discharge from the 1 in 100 year return period by 11.5%. This would reduce the peak flow of the 1 in 100 year event to less than 1 in 75 year event. The Lustrum Beck project is the first flood risk management scheme to develop a business case which includes the use of Natural Flood Management (NFM) to successfully attract Flood Defence Grant in Aid (FDGiA) funding to reduce flood risk.
