Get Advice On Flooding In Dorchester

RSPB Flooding 1

Dorset residents need to be better prepared for flooding in the future.

That's from the Environment Agency who're staging a drop-in event at Dorchester's Corn Exchange tomorrow (Tuesday 21st August).

It's to listen to local people and share information about the July floods with the aim of better protecting us in the future.

The event runs from 1.30pm till 6pm.

The events are an opportunity for residents and local businesses that have either been affected by the flooding or have on-going concerns about flooding, to share their views and experiences with officers from the relevant authority.

It will also give the County Council and Environment Agency the opportunity to gather information about the flooding incident. People who attend the open sessions are invited to bring along any photographs, video clips or notes taken during the event.

This is a chance for residents not only from the surgery locations but also from the surrounding areas to talk to officers. The information will also help us to build a picture of events and what could possibly be done to be better prepared in future.

A further session will be arranged in Weymouth, the date for this is to be confirmed.
