A flooding roadshow is inviting South Ribble residents to help shape the borough’s future flooding response. The Environment Agency, South Ribble Borough Council and partners are inviting residents to have their say on flooding and find out more about the support available. The drop-in sessions provide an opportunity for local people to inform flood risk management in their community by providing information on their experiences.
Although not as severely affected as some neighbouring areas, South Ribble Borough Council is helping residents of around 50 households and a number of businesses who suffered the devastating effects of surface water flooding and some river over-topping.As well as assisting the major responders such as Lancashire County Council and the Environment Agency, the council has cleaned up sludge and cleared debris. It has also advised those affected of the financial help and further practical support that is available. The council has been busy checking culverts, and extra staff remain on call to respond to further flooding if it occurs.
