Tenbury Wells has suffered from extensive flooding to large parts of the town on a number of occasions, most recently in November 2019 and in February 2020. The community is at risk of flooding from both the River Teme and the Kyre Brook, with direct impacts on homes and businesses. The local economy also suffers indirectly, with a number of transport links and commuter routes through the town being affected when flooding occurs.
At this stage in the design process, we predict that the scheme, when complete, will reduce risk of flooding to approximately 120 residential and 145 commercial properties, and consists of the construction of embankments and flood walls through the town. It will include some improvement to existing structures, and flood gates are also being considered in specific locations.
