The Canal and Rivers Trust has recently appointed a Project Manager with reference to the works to be carried out to the Dam. They are looking to carry out investigative work throughout early 2018, including hydro surveys to the lake bed. The exact scope of works is yet to be confirmed, as to the way the works are to be carried out. They have scheduled in November 2018 to start carrying out the works, (whatever this involves), but have advised that the works could slip back another 12 months. Any further updates will be posted throughout the year.
We have arranged with the St Helens Council to carry out some emergency, and preventative work to the trees on the roadside, and overhanging Carr Mill Road. These works will be carried out in January by a fully qualified tree surgeon.
We currently have an application in with St Helens Council to add an additional 10 pegs to the area commonly known as Gallagher’s Field on Carr Mill Dam. We will keep you updated on how this application goes.
