Petition Update: At the September meeting of the Area Committee a petition was submitted concerning the state of the Backwater in Etherow Country Park. In response to the petition, the Greenspace Manager has confirmed that the Council is awaiting information form the Environment Agency about what action the Council can take to remedy the problem as it will be subject to their approval. A number of options are being considered however a final decision on a practical affordable solution has yet to be made. Once a reply has been received from the Environment Agency officers will be in a better position to assess how best to proceed.
