Views sought in Cambridgeshire flood project

People living in Cambridgeshire are being asked for their views as part of a project to tackle future flooding.

Cambridgeshire's Flood Risk Management Partnership wants to identify potential "wetspots" around the county.

The Flood Memories Project wants to identify medium and small localised floods which may have affected one or two homes, roads, gardens, or firms.

More information on the consultation events will be available on the Cambridgeshire County Council website.

Anyone who has knowledge of a flood in the county is asked to complete a short survey form which is available online or on paper.

The information will contribute, along with other types of data-gathering, to helping the partnership to draw up a list of areas at risk of future flooding around the county.

Tony Orgee, the council's cabinet member the environment, said: "While we have good records of major flooding events, we need to build our local knowledge of smaller floods over recent years.

"We are interested to hear from anyone who has experienced a flood of any size, either at the address they are living at now or at previous addresses in the county."
