Remedial work on flood defences on the north bank of the River Ribble, to the east of Miller Park, will take place in two phases.


Preston City Council started the first phase of temporary repair work on 18 January 2016. The target date for completion is 22 January 2016.


The Environment Agency recovery programme will prioritise repair works across Cumbria and Lancashire using a risk based approach. The level of protection offered by flood defence assets will be restored by autumn 2016. This programme will include the second phase of permanent repairs to the flood defences on the north bank of the River Ribble.


The Environment Agency is not aware of any damage to flood defences east of Miller Park requiring remedial works.
