Angarrack Flood Plan 2018

181001 | Copperhouse gate refurbishment

Copperhouse gate refurbishment will ensure Hayle continues to be protected from flooding

This autumn the Environment Agency will carry out refurbishment work on the Copperhouse Gate.

The gate is a critical part of the Angarrack Flood Alleviation Scheme which provides flood protection to 138 properties in the Copperhouse area of Hayle. The refurbishment will ensure that the existing level of flood defence is maintained for a further 30 years.

Work will be carried out by Environment Agency contractors BMMJV and will begin this November. Refurbishment of the gate will take approximately 7 weeks and during this time an area of the North Quay will not be accessible to the public.  read more »

3.0 FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT

3.1 Assessment Approach

This assessment aims to minimise any impact of the development on flood risk through
adequate consideration of flooding issues and the inclusion of appropriate mitigation.

3.2 Fluvial Flood Risk

The development area, because of its proximity to a main river, is considered to be at
risk of fluvial flooding despite the presence of flood defences in the form of bunds that
have been constructed along both banks of the main river.

The map showing the local main rivers and other watercourses in the area is provided
in Appendix G.  read more »
