The Environment Agency and local flood issues

This week I held another review meeting with the Environment Agency to find out what further progress they are making on tackling flood threats in the area.

They have cleaned the Emm brook, and have committed to doing this regularly to try to prevent debris blocking or slowing the passage of the water.

I asked for a progress report on measures to alleviate flood threats along the Emm  in Wokingham – with possible beneficial effects on Winnersh, and for a report on future schemes for the Loddon floodplain.

The new Director told me she would get back to me with considered answers and was grateful for the background briefing on the outstanding issues.
