- Cllr Clarke welcomed the development and said a walkway across the river at the weirs would be a great attraction.
- If water levels in the river drop, the weirs will be dismantled, he added.
- Three of four weirs in the river broke, and an influx of sand has left water depths of only two to four inches.
- Sometimes on an exceptionally high tide the water flows over the weir causing a tidal effect as far up as Kingston.
