The Environment Agency gives notice that it proposes to carry out improvement works to the flood defences on the Bristol Frome in Iron Acton at Tubbs Bottom weir (NGR ST6782182878), a distance of 20 metres.
The proposed improvement works will involve the following:
- installation of low cost baffles on the face of the weir and 2 small pre-barrages immediately downstream of the weir at Tubbs Bottom, to improve upstream passage for fish
- the installation of a small number of eel tiles mounted vertically between the pre-barrage and weir wing wall to aid upstream eel migration
This is in accordance with Regulation 5 of the Environmental Impact Assessment (Land Drainage Improvement Works) Regulations 1999 as amended by SI 2005/1399 and SI 2006/618.
