Video: Natural Flood Management in Stroud

The Natural Flood Management Project run by Chris Uttley for Stroud District Council is a tremendous example of what can be achieved to reduce flooding and increase biodiversity at low cost by working with a forward thinking landowner and in partnership with local stakeholders.

This video has been produced to show the principles and techniques used in Stroud that mimic the natural environment to slow the flow of water during periods of heavy rainfall. The techniques used in the stream channel will be very familiar to supporters of the WTT – lots of large woody debris!

The video is available on the Stroud Council website
