Community Flood Plan

Uploaded on November 16, 2023

A formal plan has been drawn up by the Parish Council Flood Group  at the request of Cambridgeshire County Council. The purpose of the plan is to identify the specific problems faced by our village and to formulate ways of dealing with them. Whilst this is expected to take some time to achieve, the Flood Plan is designed to provide guidance and specific examples of ways forward, as well as allowing the parish access to central government funding for projects.

For quick reference, useful telephone numbers in the Plan are repeated below.
