Marlow Flood Alleviation Scheme

  • Sector:Built Environment
  • Client:Environment Agency
  • Location:Buckinghamshire
  • Value:£550k

Marlow’s enviable location on the banks of the River Thames in Buckinghamshire has been both a blessing and a curse for the picturesque town in recent years, with residents and businesses suffering from numerous instances of flooding. Most notably, this was in 2014 when 23 properties were flooded.

The Environment Agency identified that there were a total of 287 properties, which were “at risk” of river flooding in the town. To enable the completion of the wider Marlow Flood Alleviation Scheme, Barhale were selected to deliver advanced protection works on the river bank to the south east of the town.
