The Horsbere Brook Project is a project that has been started by a small group of residents with support from many agencies working in partnership, including Severn Vale Housing who is providing the funding to help take this project forward. The purpose of the project is to clean up Horsbere Brook to make it a suitable area for people to take a walk and explore the wildlife. There are a number of groups and organisations that are getting involved in the project: • Brockworth Parish Council • Severn Vale Housing • Severn Trent Water • Gloucestershire County Council • Tewkesbury Borough Council • British Trust Conservation Volunteers • Environment Agency • Brockworth Parish Council • Police Community Safety Officers The plan is to clear the brook of litter from A46 to Cedar Road. The rest of the activities are on the section from A46 to the Mill Lane playing field. We will be cutting back overgrown vegetation, reinstating pathways, steps, improving the bridges, putting in seating, fixing the water outflows, and put in a nature trail with information boards. Volunteers will help by being involved in the planning and design of the improvements, and the continued upkeep of the area after all the big work has been done.
