Why was this method chosen?
Our aim was to help protect the wildfowl that visit the lagoon from the waste it contains. A number of options were considered in order to achieve this, and the installation of a barrier between the waste and feeding birds was chosen the most favoured technical solution.
Options to remove the waste or fill in the lagoon have been considered in the past but found to be significantly more complex and hazardous and potentially more disruptive to neighbours compared to the chosen method.
The improvement work, which took place over 10 months in 2013, was undertaken in eight separate phases. For information about the work, please click here.
