Monks Wood, North Shields Surface Attenuation

We are currently on site adjacent to Beach Road. Our scheme is to separate surface water flows from the combined sewerage system and store the excessive flows during storms. To do this, we are constructing new surface water and combined sewers together with a series of cascading basins in which to hold back the flows until the storm subsides and the existing sewerage system can accept the storm water.

Update by Ashley Ferguson

Good afternoon,

Great news, North Tyneside have granted planning permission for the construction of our flood alleviation scheme in your area.

We have taken on board your comments from our last consultation exercise and from the planning process, and will be revising our reinstatement accordingly.  Our next steps will be to move to construction planning with a view of a construction start in the winter of this year.  In the coming weeks we will be posting on here, our reinstatement plans and conducting a letter drop to our customers giving greater detail of our construction programme.
