River Thames from Datchet to Shepperton Green
Flooding is possible - be prepared
Yellow warning Snow & Ice
10:00 Wed 30 Dec 2020 and
06:00 Thu 31 Dec 2020
Overnight from 23 to 24 December we received up to 55mm of rainfall at various locations throughout the river Thames catchment. We then had another wet night from Storm Bella on 26 to 27 December.
This fell on already saturated ground following a wet month in which the south east of England had already received 113% of its average monthly rainfall by 22 December. Rivers in the Thames catchment have responded to this rainfall and we have seen flows moving steadily downstream triggering Flood Alerts and Flood Warnings
Here are the details of a forthcoming road closure to take place in Datchet. All emergency services will be provided access.

December Update: Jubilee River, Black Potts weir repairs
15 December 2020
The Jubilee River is part of a man-made flood alleviation scheme, consisting of an 11.6 km stretch of
naturalistic river and habitats, which reduces the flood risk to approximately 3,000 properties in
Maidenhead, Windsor and Eton.
Black Potts Weir is the final control structure on the Jubilee River, it slows down the water as it moves over
the weir allowing us to reduce flood risk and manage river levels.
In August 2020, our divers surveyed the weir, and found that downstream area of the weir had been
eroded and required immediate repair.
Our priorities for repairing Black Potts Weir are:
• Restore the weir scour protection.
• Return the Jubilee River to operation to reduce the risk of flooding as soon as possible. This will be
carefully planned depending on the stage of repair works and the river conditions.

Black Potts Weir is one of five control structures along the length of the Jubilee River and is the final structure separating the tail end of the Jubilee River from the River Thames. It is a fixed crest weir, meaning that there are no mechanical components.
Water naturally flows over the weir as upstream flows increase. There is a fish pass at the centre, enabling fish to move upstream. The weir forms the foundation of a railway viaduct overhead for the Windsor & Eton Riverside branch line.

The Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR) for Datchet Parish Council for the year ended 31 March 2020 has been completed.
As a consequence of the Returning Officer having received no written requests for a Parish election by the deadline of the 16th October 2020, the Parish Council, as a statutory requirement, will now fill the vacancy by co-option.
