It may surprise you to learn that 46,000 households in Lambeth are at risk of surface water flooding in the event of very heavy rainfall – that’s over a third of all households. All Councils are now required to plan for such events and we need you to help us produce Lambeth’s Flood Strategy.
The Strategy must include the following:
- an assessment of local flood risk in Lambeth
- what flood risk issues need to be managed
- how these issues will be managed.
We are also producing a Residents Guide, which will show the flood risk and proposed plans for each Ward. The guide will also include advice on actions you can take to reduce the risk of flooding at home and wider actions to tackle the surface water run-off in general.
To ensure the Strategy and guide are useful to you, we need as much input from you as possible.
There are a number of ways in which you can get involved.
It will only take a few minutes to give us your opinions and feedback online.
Attend our workshop
We are holding a workshop on the 31st January 2013 starting at 6.45pm and finishing at 9pm. We need 50 or so residents to come along and help us to develop our plans.
The session will include an introduction to the Strategy and local flood issues; small discussion groups on the proposed plans, an opportunity to feedback on the Residents Guide.
Light refreshments will be provided. If you are interested in attending please email email@example.com for details.
If you are interested but cannot attend the workshop, we would still value your input. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you draft documents for your feedback and comments.
