Greg discusses flood prevention measures in Lamberhurst

Greg met with representatives from the Environment Agency and Lamberhurst Parish Council to discuss progress on a flood protection initiative for local residents.

Greg said:

"Lamberhurst has suffered a number of serious floods in recent years so it was important to try and find ways of protecting people's houses. By working closely together, the Environment Agency and the local community have come up with a scheme which everyone is happy with.

Rather than building enormous concrete flood walls along the river which would ruin the look of the village, the community decided that they would prefer to install flood protection measures like pump and flood resistant gates in each home at risk ."
