About this event

The Bath Quays Waterside Project is a flood risk/regeneration engineering project that is being jointly promoted by the Environment Agency and Bath and North East Somerset Council. Alongside reducing flood risk to over 100 properties it enables the development of key regeneration sites within the centre of Bath.

While the project was conceived as a flood mitigation and defence project, it is also a major opportunity to overcome the city's history of turning its back on the river. The project, which is currently being constructed, seeks to significantly enhance the riverside, creating better access and more enjoyable environment for local people and visitors to the city.
