    St Andrews Road Flooding

    about 1 year ago

    I have lived in the area of St Andrews Road for nearly seven years. There has always been flooding in the road near the duck pond entrance but it used to be a rare event - maybe a couple times a year in very heavy rain.

    A Natural Approach

    by Pantherman , over 1 year ago
    Hello, Thought you might be interested in a natural DIY field scale approach to reducing an extreme weather flood risk situation.


    I am not in the Par St Blazey Catchment but am in an catchment that feeds into St Austell Bay.

    The issue, during extreme weather events, water flows into a woodland via a pipe and through a bank spreading across a field (my field) on its journey before flowing down and impacting barns in the valley bottom (my barns).

    Lack of co-operation with adjacent woodand landowner required an in field solution, the objective being to guide the flow, slow... Continue reading
