Weir, HAVANNAH LANE, HAVANNAH, CONGLETON

Proposal

A new intake structure on the west bank roughly 20m upstream of the weir, 3.5m wide and protected by a coarse screen of 150mm aperture. 30m of 1500mm dia. buried low pressure pipeline. An Archimedes Screw turbine set onto concrete foundations within a 3m-wide channel constructed from sheet steel piles. A control building above the turbine 4m x 5.5m in plan enclosing the gearbox, generator and control equipment. A short tailrace channel delivering the flow back into the downstream weirpool. A buried electrical cable running 1000m to the switchroom at the Siemens factory in Congleton. Upgrading of the existing 'angler's footpath' with a post-and-beam raised boardwalk (1.2m width). The armoured power cable running across to Havannah Lane will be fixed beneath the boardwalk. 250m of temporary access track coming from the north, off the A536 through an adjacent field and down to the plateau above the intake and turbine locations, providing construction access to the hydro works whilst avoiding the more sensitive areas of the woodland.
