Drop-in session for flood alleviation plans in Laxey

Tue, 22 Sep 2020

Residents in Laxey will be able to find out more about the future alleviation work planned for the area at two sessions next week.

Manx Utilities will hold the drop-in sessions next Monday and Tuesday at Laxey Working Men’s Institute between 10am and 8pm.

The sessions will exhibit the future flood alleviation work planned for Laxey over the next two to three years and support the delivery of recommendations of the ARUP report commissioned by the Chief Minister following the flooding in October last year.

Department of Infrastructure Minister Tim Baker who is also Chairman of Manx Utilities said, “The approach designed by the joint working of DOI, Manx Utilities and supported by specialist consultants JBA has been designed to identify all flood risk reduction opportunities possible within the Laxey area and has been underway for a significant period."

"Over 50 options have been identified for river, tidal and surface water flood risk reduction having been evaluated for suitability, build-ability, economic viability, and environmental sustainability."
