Drone footage to help with Environment Agency flood scheme information session


The Environment Agency has teamed up with Royal Society for the Protection of Birds to present further information about Phase 2 of a flood prevention scheme near Birmingham.

The £32m project in Perry Barr and Witton has used drones to document the ongoing construction work.

Attendees have been invited along to RSPB at Tanhouse Avenue next Thursday, where they will have the opportunity to see how the Environment Agency is progressing with the construction work in Sandwell Valley Country Park.

Guests will view a presentation by Andy Purcell, a local volunteer, who has captured drone images of work since construction started.

Cathy Taylor, site manager at RSPB Sandwell Valley said: “We are looking forward to the Environment Agency sharing project updates with our team and the public at the RSPB Sandwell Valley visitor centre.”

She added: “We are looking forward to showing the Environment Agency our newly improved marsh as this work was made possible thanks to their supporting it as an environmental improvement associated with the Perry Barr and Witton Flood Risk Management Scheme.”
