Lifford Reservoir

Public notice

Due to the increase of fly-tipping and anti-social behaviour in the area surrounding the reservoir it has become necessary for the city council to implement a sustainable solution.

A height restriction barrier will therefore be placed at the entrance point A on the map below and access to vehicles will be restricted at point B.


Daily access to the reservoir will be possible for vehicles up to 1.95m in height.

Access for larger vehicles will depend on circumstances.
Consideration will be given to restricting vehicles at night in the future if required.
If you have any questions please contact Sue Amey Tel: 0121 464 8728
