Long term plans to prevent future flooding in Crowle are due to be discussed this week.

Residents of the town are being invited to a meeting tomorrow, Friday January 24, to talk about what can be done to alleviate the problem of floods.

Zelia Lyne, from Severn Trent Water said: “Everyone in Crowle will be aware that flooding has been an issue in the past.

“We, and a number of other groups, are working to find a solution to this problem, so that the community can be better protected in the future.”

She added: “It’s really important to us that our customers have the chance to join in this conversation about what should be done to improve the situation where they live.

“We’re working in partnership with the Environment Agency, North Lincolnshire Council, the Isle of Axholme and North Nottinghamshire Water Level Management Board.

“Severn Trent Water has already taken some short-term steps to help prevent sewer flooding, we’re now looking at what can be done in the long-term.”

The flooding forum takes place at 7pm at the Crowle Community Hub and is free for everyone to attend.
