Dredging request for the brook - full of silt
Reported via desktop in the Watercourse category anonymously at 16:24, Thursday 17 August 2023
Sent to Shropshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 14120852.
The silt in the stream has built up and the brook is a 3rd of size it should be. If an object gets caught Under footbridge this gets wedged and the water backs up and floods easily.
There is a small retaining wall but the stream is so silted up, you cant see the wall, the footpath runs on top of wall The Brook needs to be dredged to remove this built up of silt

Hi There, A photo to explain just how much the silt has built up, especially under the foot bridge. We would all be most grateful if this problem could be resolved before the next heavy rain and the Close floods! Thank you. All the best Frankie
