Flood risks

I have asked Wokingham Borough to have an other look at plans to improve flood defences. Now that the Council is pressing on with major new developments at Shinfield and in Wokingham there is more need to ensure better management of surface water and heavy rainfall. Run off will be speeded up by putting more of the area under concrete and tarmac.

The Council has promised plans to reduce flood risk on the A327 into Shinfield from Arborfield, and to look at ways o cutting flood risk at the Loddon roundabout. The extra homes in north and south Wokingham and in Shinfield also require better water management.
