The planning application for the works was submitted to the Broads Authority (via Broadland District Council) in April 2004. This is for flood defence works at Buckenham and Strumpshaw Marshes adjacent to the left bank of the River Yare.

In Compartment 16, similarly to elsewhere in Broadland, the floodbank, folding and rond supported a number of trees and areas of scrub within parts of the river corridor. In order to undertake the proposed flood defence improvements and subsequent maintenance, a program of tree and scrub clearance was undertaken during the winter period.

Following receipt of planning approval, BESL started the improvement works in both compartments in September 2004. Works were completed in October 2005.
