Additional surveys will be undertaken in Shepton Mallet on 13 and 14 September 2022 as part of the programme for enhanced Flood Risk Management. Mendip District Councils secured addtional funding through the Somerset Rivers Authority to undertake a detailed investigation following the flooding event of October 2020. In March 2022, substantial surveys were carried out.
Further CCTV surveys will now be undertaken to help understand the existing systems better and inform solutions to mitigate flood risk.
See below for more details on the works and details of the areas requiring traffic management measures.
