South Bank and Eston

We are currently undertaking a Stage Two Northumbria Integrated Drainage Partnership (NIDP) study in South Bank and Eston. Stage 2 is a diagnostic study where we carry out a more in depth survey, investigation and hydraulic model enhancement to address specific issues and develop opportunities at the top priority locations identified in stage 1. This includes option development and an assessment of cost of the proposed options. We then look at an assessment of benefits and beneficiaries to demonstrate the impact of the proposed project. If we are able to show that the project delivers an appropriate level of benefits ( i.e. it doesn’t cost more to construct than the value of the property that it protects) this enables us to make applications for joint funding to progress to design and construction.

Update by Loren Jennings

Good morning.

I wanted you to know that we are going to have surveyors out in Eston to collect more information to use in our study.  They will be measuring the size and shape of several watercourses and associated culverts, which will help us calculate how much water they can carry.  With this information, we can better understand flood risk.

This work is not expected to affect traffic and will happening at multiple locations including:

  • Cross Beck
  • Sheep Beck
  • Spencer Beck
  • Various unnamed watercourses in general proximity to the A174, Oatfields Ct, Woodlands Rd, Eston Rd, & Bevanlee Rd

We’re following government guidelines, to keep our teams, customers and communities safe during our work.  If you want to ask us a question or simply say hello, please remember to keep a safe two meter distance.  

Thank you very much,
