DOVE CLIFF WEIR REMOVAL - PUBLIC DROP-IN EVENT

The Environment Agency is working to restore the River Dove to improve biodiversity and improve fish passage from the River Trent, through the entire Dove catchment - by removing this weir - the first obstacle to fish migration on the River Dove.  Removing the Dove Cliff Weir will open up over 30 miles of migratory habitat for fish and other species.  There will be information displays and representatives from the Environment Agency, and our design and construction consultants GBV, available to answer questions at the event.

All are welcome to come to:

  • Find out about the weir removal – what we are planning and why
  • What the work will involve
  • How the river will be improved and look after the work
  • Share knowledge on this stretch of river

The drop-in event will be on Thursday 29 November 2018, 2pm - 7pm at Dovecliff Hall Hotel (Charrington Room), Dovecliff Road, Stretton, Burton on Trent DE13 0DJ   -   download poster here
