The dam at the Mill Pond was in a bad state of repair and councillors agreed to upgrade it.
In 2011 more than 500 residents responded to a consultation on the future of the Mill Pond and 89.1 per cent wanted the dam repaired, to maintain the natural area and wildlife and to retain the volume of the water to ensure the workings of the restored Ifield Water Mill.
The Council has worked closely with the Environment Agency to ensure that the final scheme meets with its approval.
The work began in April 2014 and was completed in July 2015. See the documents below for more information:
