Councillor Flooding Letter Aug 2016

Home » Latest News » Councillor Flooding Letter

Would you like to add your ha'porth about flood patterns in Curry Rivel? Then read this open letter to Residents from one of your Councillors and apply yourself.

Dear Resident,

The Parish Council are working with FWAG (Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group) to reduce incidents of flooding in our parish.
We have been identifying areas where flooding has occurred in the past and we have been tracing the path of flood waters which follow periods of heavy rain.

Several residents have already had discussions with the PC and from their observations we have been able to develop details of flood water courses in the Water Street area. Further information and observations will be welcome from residents in Water Street and any other areas within our parish where flooding has been a problem.

The type of information we require is:
Location and description of flood hotspots
Location and direction of surface flows
Photographs of flooding and surface flows
Your observations on why flooding occurs in your area e.g. Blocked drains or culverts

We hope that you will be able to assist us in collecting this information and would like you to confirm your support?

Reports and feedback should be addressed to:
Paul Deacon
Fairview Lodge
TA10 0HP
Tel: 01458 251898

Thank you for your support
Paul Deacon
Parish Councillor Curry Rivel
