Residents Invited To Join Flood Concerns Meeting

Cotswold folk concerned about local flooding issues are being invited to an online meeting on February 11th.

Cotswold District Council is running the meeting off the back of the flooding seen in the area back in December.

But flooding was also an issue at the end of January.

That was when the council and local partners sprang into action to support residents in Cirencester and Fairford who were affected.

The council, Ubico Limited and local teams from Cirencester Town Council and Fairford Town Council helped deploy sandbags and pumps to try and prevent internal property flooding.

As river levels rose, groundwater and surface water runoff contributed to property and road flooding in Cirencester and surrounding villages.

Leader of the council Joe Harris encourages all residents affected to join the meeting to discuss ongoing issues and make their voices heard.
