£7.5million planning application for improvements to Ifield Mill Pond

Crawley Borough Council has agreed a £7.5million planning application for improvements to Ifield Mill Pond.

A meeting of the development control committee on Monday (March 10) approved flood alleviation work, including improvements to the dam and the removal of 20,000 cubic metres of silt.

The application followed a public consultation and it is estimated the work – which is scheduled to begin in April – will take 30 weeks to complete.

The improvement work was required to bring the dam up to the standard called for by the Reservoirs Act 1975.
