Dovecliffe weir - River Dove - EA proposals

Public drop-in: changes to Dove Cliff Weir
The Environment Agency will be holding a public drop-in
event to update the local community on changes to Dove
Cliff weir.
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 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.
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 your knowledge on this stretch of river
 Provide feedback
The public drop-in event will be held on:
Thursday 29 November 2018, 2pm - 7pm
at Dovecliff Hall Hotel (Charrington Room)
Dovecliff Road, Stretton, Burton on Trent
DE13 0DJ
There will be information displays and representatives from the Environment
Agency, and design and construction consultants GBV, available to answer
questions at the event.

 

Staunton Harold - Sailing events

All members,

You can fish on the dates below but if you wish to avoid the boats please note the info below.

Listed are the sailing events at Staunton Harold Reservoir scheduled for this Autumn:

Also, there are sailing events Saturday and Sunday from March through to November, plus evening sailing Wednesdays and Fridays through the summer.  Club webs-site lists the events: http://shsc.org.uk//events/

We do try to set the sailing course to avoid the fishermen where possible, but because of the way boats race, we have to position the start downwind and the first turning mark upwind, so it is likely that we will need to get close to the bank at some point.  Our rules are to keep 5 boats lengths away from the back, so this is typically 20 metres.

 

Branston Water Park - Re-open

We have received the message below as of 9th November via ESDC

“Having consulted with DEFRA, the Food and Plant agency and Public Health England we believe the chances of the issue still being present is extremely low due to the current weather, site conditions and temperature so please accept this email as permission to continue use of Branston Water Park. 

We do advise you and your members to take what precautions you see fit which could include but is not limited to - cleaning gear/equipment after use on the water, hand cleaning/sanitising after touching anything that comes in contact with the water”

As a result BMAA have taken the decision to immediately reopened Branston to angling.

 

 

Horseshoe Meadow - River Dove

Carpark access is currently NOT available from Station Road in Rolleston at the old carpark number 4.

Despite it looking like we have lost access, all members should be aware that this is not the case, at present we have nowhere for carparking however down the access lane. You are free to use the lane for pedestrian access however.

Once we have been able to secure carparking again we will advise of the new arrangements.
