Ornamental Canal Update

IMG_7193The pump has recently broken on the canal which is creating problems with the water level. The wildlife rafts installed last year are meant to be submerged but with the pump issues, they have become visible. I have asked the maintenance team to take a look, and they are going to get the biodiversity officer to review how well the planting is working. I have also pushed for progress on improved information boards and asked for the fencing to be fixed.

I received today the following update from Matt of the Clean & Green team:

Good Morning Councillor.

Thank you for your email. We have raised an order for inspection and repair of the pumps with our surveyors department. I have asked for a full timeframe and report regarding the issues but have yet to receive this. I have chased this up today yet again and will certainly update you fully once I am in receipt of this

We have however removed the majority of the weed from the tobacco dock area of the canal and this is looking much better.

We are aware of the fence and I believe this is not TH owned and is being investigated by Keith Woodard CC. I am meeting Keith at the canal at 10am this morning to look at the sign boards along the canal and will provide an update later today on when these will be repaired.

Hope all is well

Kind Regards
