Consultation period ends in bid to reduce flood risk 

 Published on: 26th April 2018   |   By: Dean Shaw   |   Category: Uncategorized

A consultation period informing residents living near to a river in Pinner about plans to reduce flood risk has closed after three drop-in sessions were held. 

The Environment Agency have been informing residents about plans to reduce the flood risk along the River Pinn with sessions held across the river’s route, including Pinner, before consultation closed on 9 April. 

Communities in the River Pinn catchment have experienced flooding several times in recent years with 2016 the year when it was at its worst.

The Environment Agency has been working with Hillingdon and Harrow councils and Thames Water to better understand the causes of this flooding and identify action that could reduce the risk.

Lucy Allard, of the Environment Agency, said: “We can only progress proposals if they are fully funded.

“The project is currently part-funded by central government, but there is still a need to find more funding, for example from organisations and businesses that will benefit.”
