Residents have been invited to take part in a consultation on flooding in the county. The county council is reviewing the county’s Local Flood Risk Management Strategy and wants to hear the views of people about this area of its service. The consultation period will end on Friday, September 30. Working alongside a number of organisations, the council has responsibility for tackling flooding in Hertfordshire, which can include advising residents on practical measures they can take to protect themselves and their property. Derrick Ashley, cabinet member for environment, planning and transport, said: “The strategy helps us and other organisations to manage the risk of flooding. We only have limited resources so it’s important to hear from people what they think we should be prioritising when we investigate flood incidents. “We’re continuing to lobby the Government for additional funding and powers to tackle flooding and hope the results of this consultation will help us make our case.” Hear what else Derrick Ashley had to say, and more, in the September edition of My Radlett & Shenley News, which will be distributed on August 26.
