I held a meeting with the Environment Agency and the Minister for preventing floods to ask what more action can be taken to tackle flooding issues along the Emm and Loddon rivers in Wokingham Borough. I was told that they are working on a study of the Loddon to see what additional measures should be taken. I offered suggestions on possible actions, and reminded them of the areas most liable to flood.

    John, do not accept their platitudes – the EA would rather ‘consult’ than do any work. I think you should tell them to dredge until they can absolutely prove it is the wrong thing to do. That is really their job.

    Dredge and dump the spoil on the surrounding land. As we did for many years.
