Improve barrier to reduce impact on fish

There is a signicant barrier close to Noaks Hill Road which is protecting the nearby houses from flooding, however this will be a significant barrier to fish trying to move up and down stream.

 This barrier needs to be assessed to determine if the impact can be reduced and determine how best to do this without impacting on local housing.
