ADVANCE NOTICE - FIRST NFM COMMUNITY GROUP MEETING

The first Meeting of the Bodenham Brooks Natural Flood Management (NFM) Community Group will be held on Tuesday 12th March, 6:45 pm to 7:45 pm at the Siward James Centre.

The provisional Agenda is:

2. Update on NFM Project as a whole
3. Catchment Delivery Plan - Bodenham Brooks & local knowledge of flooding
4. Monitoring Plan

All interested local residents, farmers and other landowners are most welcome to attend the Meeting. It is very important to create an NFM community within the area and your input in the form of flood-related experience and ideas will be most valuable.


Background
.

For those who were unable to attend the Launch of the Project on 23 January, DEFRA have allocated £15M towards the introduction of Natural Flood Management (NFM) measures across the country and Bodenham is the focus for one of several NFM projects now being initiated in the County by Herefordshire Council, the Environment Agency, the Wye and Usk Foundation and other partners.

NFM is based around the principle of working with natural processes to help slow down the flow of water, aiming to hold the water back in the upper reaches of the catchment to help reduce the risk of flooding to downstream communities. NFM can involve a variety of things including; working with farmers to help improve their land management practices with the aim of increasing soil infiltration, installing attenuation features (e.g. ponds and wetlands), and building leaky woody structures which help slow the flow of water down the channel.
