A step forward for Billing Brook Lakes



Last year Local Lib Dem Councillor Dennis Meredith  ( Talavera), arranged a survey to find out why Billing Brook Lakes were silting up and polluted.

There were problems with water flows, blocked culverts , run-off from Round Spinney  Industrial Estate and rubbish dumped in water courses. The report highlighted years of neglect and possible health hazards.

Thanks to Dennis’s persistence both the Environment Agency and Northampton Borough Council did extensive work this, together with more rainfall  last winter, means the lakes are looking much healthier this spring
