Silting up of stream/bridge

I have been onto the waterways but they say it's your responsibility! The bridge is silted up badly, especially the side arches, so as you can imagine when the stream is swollen it can't flow quickly enough, thus causing flooding. It could do with being cleaned out so water can flow through all three arches of the bridge.

  • The Council have told me that they cannot do anything with this problem unless they get permission from the environment agency. This is still ongoing, I'm still waiting to hear from the environment agency, which should be soon, they said they would reply by the 9th April but no word yet.
