Roseberry Crescent, Great Ayton Flood Alleviation

We are working with the community to explore opportunities to reduce the risk of flooding. The proposed works are located along Roseberry Crescent, Roseberry Road, Roseberry Avenue, Wheatlands and Newton Road, Great Ayton and within the site which forms part of the estate of Cleveland Lodge. The proposed works involve the installation of approximately 1300m of surface water and foul water sewer for the purpose of flood alleviation. Proposed works are also to involve the construction of a SuDS basin for surface water attenuation.

Update by Christine Taylor

Good afternoon everyone,

I have landed on site this afternoon to find we have taken ownership of a zebra!

As you can see (photo attached) this is obviously a 14 tonne wheeled excavator, which has been painted as a Zebra.  Our site team have lovingly named the zebra as 'Zebedee'.

Zebedee will soon in the streets of Great Ayton carrying out his work, starting in the area of Farm Garth and Roseberry Crescent.

Some residents will have received a letter stating that our works will begin in Farm Garth on Monday 15 April 2019.  On Tuesday 23 April 2019 we will start works in the road of Roseberry Crescent, outside Farm Garth towards Newton Road.  Over the following weeks we will move along towards the junction of Wheatlands.  I have visited or spoke to customers directly impacted by the works, the communication will continue as our works progress.  

I would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we carry out this upgrade to the existing drainage network.

Have a lovely weekend
