Environment Agency Flood Risk Plan

Have your say on flood risk management scheme.
The Environment Agency have undertaken a study into flood risk along the River Blackwater in the Coggeshall, Feering and Kelvedon areas. The study follows concerns from residents and businesses about the impact of flooding in these areas and they have put forward a series of potential options for residents, businesses, landowners and local authorities to consider. 
The options paper can be downloaded here.
Priti Patel MP is encouraging residents to examine the proposals and respond with their views to her by completing the form below or by sending them by email to: [email protected] and to the Environment Agency at: [email protected]
