BREEDON ON THE HILL FLOOD MODELLING STUDY

PUBLIC UPDATE APRIL 2020

In 2017 the Council appointed an external consultant to conduct flood modelling for Breedon on the Hill to look at potential flood mitigation options. The findings of this modelling demonstrated that there was no 'quick win' 'one solution will solve all' option available. The Council presented the findings of this work at a Public Meeting in December 2017.

In 2018, the Council appointed the same external consultant to conduct further modelling work to test a range of 'smaller scale options'. Since this appointment, the Council has faced a number of challenges and the work is not yet finished. The Council is therefore not yet in a position to present the findings to the public. The Council apologises for this delay and recognises that this is a disappointing position to be in.

The Council presented an update to the Parish Council and a representative of the Flood Wardens on 20th April 2020 via a skype conference presentation. The work completed to date, the challenges faced and the way forward were all discussed.

The Council has committed to providing a monthly update ahead of future Parish Council meetings to be published by the Parish Council until such time that a public report is made available and the findings can be presented to the public. The Council anticipates that this will occur in Summer 2020.

The Council continues to work closely with the Parish Council and the Flood Wardens for Breedon and would like to thank all involved to date for their valuable time and input.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact the Parish Council directly.
