Lydney Docks to be Refurbished
The Environment Agency (EA) in the UK says it hopes to obtain Heritage Lottery funding to help with the refurbishment of the historic Lydney Docks and surrounding harbour on the Severn estuary in the UK.
EA Project Manager Will Reed says that one of the key aspects of the project is to upgrade the flood defences across the dock.
Whilst carrying out the work, it also plans to develop a marina, a boatyard, a chandler, workshops and other facilities. Once the work is completed, the EA will hand over the refurbished docks to a management trust.
Detailed designs are due to be submitted to the Lottery Board in June. The plan to upgrade and refurbish the docks is being carried out by a number of organizations including the EA, Gloucestershire City Council, Forest of Dean District Council, Lydney Town Council, British Waterways, The Waterways Trust, Gloucester Harbour Trustees, the Regional Development Agency and English Heritage.
The cost of the project is estimated to be in the order of £1.9m, not including the flood defence work, which will be funded by the EA itself, at a cost of approximately £600,000.
