Weston case study

  • 20-12-2016

A growth plan to be implemented over the next 15 years will see the development of approximately 6,000 new homes, various school and community facilities and 40 hectares of employment land on a site adjacent to             Weston-super-Mare. This plan required the creation of two flood areas and associated infrastructure to protect the new development from flooding.

Blackwell carried out the development of flood storage areas as two separate phases. The first phase, known as the Southern Superpond, involved the creation of a shallow storage area south of the old Weston Airfield. The second phase, involving the creation of a compound channel adjacent to the River Banwell, also included the upgrading of two dilapidated footbridges crossing the river.
