Severn Barrage

All is quiet on the surface but we know that significant lobbying of Government by Hafren Power has shifted a possible Severn Barrage up the political agenda. We are not sure when a formal proposal will come forward but the first indication could be as soon as 20th March when the Chancellor introduces his budget. Any kind of support for a barrage in the budget could be the first sign that the Government is taking the possibility seriously.

It is important that Government is aware of the potential damage that such a scheme could cause. Standing up for what to most people is a vast expanse of boring mud is not easy - but if you would like to help us in this read The Wildlife Trust's report "ENERGY AT ANY PRICE" which outlines the ecological issues and then write to your MP to make sure he gets the message!
