FENLANDER: Flood-affected residents urged to share experiences at public meeting
ANYONE in Fenland who has been hit by flooding in the past is being urged to provide details of how they were affected to help the authorities deal effectively with any future problems.
People are being invited to relate their experiences at a public meeting in March Library next Tuesday (October 19) from 4.30-8pm. They are also being urged to fill in a county-wide survey pinpointing flooding “wetspots” in the district.
The “Flood Memories” project is being conducted by the Cambridgeshire Flood Risk Management Partnership, which comprises all the agencies responsible for dealing with flooding.
The Partnership is preparing a prioritised list of “at risk” areas and says: “Your experiences are crucial to helping us create a complete picture of flooding around the county.
“We are interested in all sizes of floods from those that may have affected one or two houses up to large-scale flooding.”

The survey is available online or on paper until October 31. For details, go to www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk and follow the links to flood memories.
