Well maintained watercourses (brooks, streams, ditches etc) reduce the risk of flooding. We investigate complaints concerning blockages to these watercourses and if necessary can pursue enforcement action using legislation under Section 25 of the Land Drainage Act 1991.

Landowners with watercourses on their land (Riparian Landowners) have a duty to maintain them. We can offer advice to such landowners in order to avoid problems such as disputes or legal action. Where more than one landowner may be concerned we will liaise between all parties to achieve the right results.

Any works on or adjacent to an ordinary watercourse that are likely to interfere with the proper flow whether temporarily or permanently, may require consent under Section 23 of the Land Drainage Act 1991. For further advice or to discuss submitting an application, please contact Debbie Bowen on the details below.
