Verge Restoration Works

Forestry England, having a legal duty to protect the New Forest, are undertaking a programme of verge restoration works to stop further vehicle damage across the forest, including Brockenhurst.  These works with various partner organisations - Verderers, National England, New Forest National Park, Parish Councils, CDA, residents and local staff - are funded under the New Forest Higher Level Stewardship Scheme. 

A number of areas are included in the proposed programme of remedial works which will include re-profiling existing car-free banks and ditches which have eroded over the years, and creating new banks where erosion has been caused by vehicle movements.  Dragon's Teeth (small wooden posts made from FSC Chestnut) will also be installed. 

Maps of the areas can be found here.   Further information is available here.

Flood Alleviation

The Parish Council have been working with various bodies to achieve flood reduction by identifying watercourses and drains that are particularly prone to blockage so that their clearance can be prioritised.  In low lying areas such as Brockenhurst it is particularly important that watercourses and drains are actively managed.  

Please see the Flooding section of our Emergency Services webpage for more information.  

To report a faulty or blocked watercourse please phone the Parish Clerk on 622829 or New Forest District Council on 023 8028 5000.

If you live in the Parish and are interested in having an allotment please contact the Parish Clerk by email or on 622829 to be put on the waiting list.
