The ability of non jumping migratory species to move past weirs is generally accepted as a desirable feature which positively enhances the ecology of a river system.

As has been documented elsewhere - North Mill is capable of accommodating a fish pass in the scheme - a facility which the EU is attempting to make mandatory for every hydro power scheme. We have offered to install a fish pass on the North Mill project, Weavers Mill as we understand the situation cannot do this....
