There are 4 options for redevelopment, only one involves lowering the water level. Option 3, which I voted for, would see the water level maintained, 3 weirs and a fish pass built.

2 weirs to be built on the strait up from the landing stage up to the first bend in the river,a pretty artists impression in stone was shown to me, but in realality they will be concrete and barbed wire to keep tidal water out, not sure fresh water weed and roach will like it much, so we are loosing some of our fishing rights left to us by lady swaythling, we need to start campaining against this enviromenal vandleism
