Next steps for Bridgwater Tidal Barrier
Following the consultation that was held last autumn, which looked at two potential sites for the proposed Bridgwater Barrier, all responses have now been considered.
Following technical assessment and consideration of all points raised, Site 5, between Express Park and Chilton Trinity village has been selected as the optimum site for the Bridgwater Tidal Barrier.
The optimum design for the barrier is a structure with two vertical lift gates.
The next steps are to developing ideas for the appearance of the barrier and landscaping. These ideas will be put out to consultation for anyone to have their say in the late summer/early autumn.
