Are both sections now being started, clearly a large amount of material will have to be placed to cover these tree roots, hence why I made reference to railway sleepers as they will withstand any force behind them as long as the right supports are in place.

Dear Cllr Ron,

James and Richard made a start on the work this week. They will come back and finish it next week.

We will monitor the situation, there may be an ongoing issue here after the bank works are completed, that surface run off from the top is taking material down the bank. This is something that we will struggle to deal with. However, as I said we will monitor this and take a look at the site when there is heavy rain to see if this is the case.

Michael.

Having taken some shots of the bank to the rear of properties adjacent to the boardwalk, one can so clearly see the slippage and showing of the tree roots, your email last week said that works would be starting this week on both issues one behind 82 and this bank, I have not as yet managed to get down to the Stour so can you please let me know if works have started.

Also the photo showing the slippage and further erosion to the path adjacent to the safety fence.
