The existing flood defences in Clevedon include rhyne drainage systems and managed rivers and sluices across Tickenham and Nailsea moor.  Consideration of this carefully managed flood defence which drains out to Clevedon needs to be incorporated into highway links and proposed new garden villages around Nailsea. Failure to do this will see a return to the annual flooding of this plain which was remedied in the 1930's. 

Nailsea Moor's rhynes, rivers and sluices are part of Clevedon's flood defences. Don't destroy this delicate system.
