Progress concerning the Fishing Platform Project has been frustratingly slow. As previously posted on this News Page I did manage to obtain permission from the Flood Risk Prevention Team at the Environment Agency to site 12 platforms at specific grid references above and below Strode Rd. We were almost there with funding support from Sport England and then the Environment Agency Estates Team informed me that another arrangement concerning the land that runs alongside part of the river was being discussed. With who or what it entails is a mystery. I have been corresponding with the EA Estates Team over this since last August.
To-day (25th Feb) I have written to them again describing our frustration as a Club and the lack of co-operation despite having the fishing licence for the Blind Yeo since 1956!
Update to follow when and if received.
