IWA Guildford & Reading Branch Donation will Boost Canal Restoration and Flood Alleviation in Bramley

Issue date: 17th July 2013

IWA Guildford & Reading Branch has presented The Wey & Arun Canal Trust with a cheque for £500. The money is intended to help fund the reconnection of the Wey and Arun Canal with the river Wey at Gun’s Mouth Island as well as the reconstruction work on the canal at Bramley.

The work in the Bramley area is particularly important as the canal could be used to provide flood alleviation in a housing area that regularly floods. Further consultations have to be carried out.  The current plans are likely to take at least a year to complete with bids for funding and further construction work planned following the completion of this initial stage.
