Cosby Brook

Cosby Parish Council are aware of the rapid growth of vegetation in the brook, especially around the Nook road bridge.

We have taken advice from the Environment Agency and as the water level is very low, removing the vegetation is likely to result in excess silt and may kill any fish in the brook.

As is evident with the ducklings, we are also in the main breeding season and have to be cautious of any negative impact any work would have on the wildlife. More »

The advice from the Environment Agency is that we should wait until the temperature is cooler and water levels have increased before any work is carried out in the brook.

Cosby Parish Council is currently commissioning the work to be carried out in October 2019. » Less
