Councillor Ken Hawkins, Cabinet Member for Environment and Highways has now signed off on a series of flood mitigation schemes which will help over 100 properties in the borough.

These schemes will see residents being offered the opportunity to introduce Property Level Resilience and Resistance (PLR) measures, essentially practical support, to make their homes safer.

Those residents who are included will be contacted and asked to complete an online questionnaire to scope out their requirements and to arrange individual property surveys.

Flood risk specialists, appointed by the Council will be contacting these residents directly to undertake the surveys in accordance with Covid-19 guidelines.

The Council will continue to look at securing further funding so more schemes can be rolled out to other areas that are at risk of flooding.
