- There are regular monthly meetings with the EA, Lowdham FLAG and Lowdham Parish Council.
- The scheme has been drawn up and submitted for planning to Newark and Sherwood District Council in November 2021. Details are available here
- The proposed scheme would start in Spring 2022 and be complete by summary 2023.
- The approximate cost of the scheme is over £10m and is financed primarily by the EA. This includes the additional £5m funding from the government announced by Robert Jenrick in July 2020 as part of the Green recovery package.
