Monks Wood, North Shields Surface Attenuation

We are working with the community to explore opportunities to reduce the risk of flooding by removing surface water from our network, using sustainable methods where possible. We are bringing this Rainwise project to Monks Wood in North Shields. Northumbrian water plan to install new Sewers to provide highlevel relief to the existing network entering Monks Wood, transferring high flow to an adjacent combined sewer on Beach Road. We may install a new sewer and SuDS basins to divert surface water to free up capacity in the combined sewer on Beach Road. The surface water will be attenuated, then discharged into the highway drainage network, which will allow the augmentation of the existing flood alleviation scheme.

Start Date

March, 2018

Estimated End Date

March, 2019



Update by Christine Taylor

Good morning,

My name is Christine Taylor, the Customer Service Manager from Esh-MWH, working alongside Ashley Ferguson, Northumbrian Water Project Manager for the proposed scheme.

We hope customers have now received an invite to our customer event to discuss proposed works in the area.  Please come along and take the opportunity to talk to Ashley Ferguson and his project team.

There is a room booked at Pearey House, Preston Park, North Shields, NE29 9JR, on the 14 February 2018, from 3pm to 7pm.

It would be great to see people.
