December 2019 update.

This page contains updates on the ongoing Flood Alleviation work as well as archive material detailing DCC’s responses to our local queries from 2015 together with an outline of their preferred options for the flood alleviation measures to protect the village.

With no site for a holding pond to the south of the village DCC have been  improving the access to the existing culvert in Stoke Road and Deane Road

DCC also intend to carry out a further CCTV survey in Deane Road when the water flow is reduced with a view to improving the drainage. They intend  to repair the damaged section and increase the size of the pipes by replacing or ‘twinning’ the existing pipework.

The original scheme involving holding ponds to reduce water flow into the village has now been replaced by a programme of PLR property level resilience where residences will be fitted with flood resistant doors and gates as appropriate.

The Flood forum assisted in the production of the 2015 report by Consultant Engineer Nigel Smith, on behalf of DCC. Following the publication of the report three local meetings were arranged covering the proposed work in three different areas of the village. Nigel Smith produced an abridged version of the report to inform us of the proposed works in those areas prior to the meetings. Those documents can be viewed by clicking the links below.
