Flood Meeting

You probably recall the flooding in Albert Drive before Christmas. On Thursday 9th January we had a very positive meeting with Richard Speller, Highway Manager at West Sussex County Council and his colleague Tim Boxall in collaboration with Steve Long of Merlin Workwear, Steve Weller of Pet Products and Katie Edwards of Woolover – all 3 having been impacted multiple times by flooding.

On inspecting the site, the cause of the recent flooding was largely down to a lack of maintenance responsibility for which cuts across a number of agencies. That said, Richard and Tim were very clear that WSCC Highways would now take the lead role and work with the Environment Agency, and if necessary MSDC, to ensure corrective actions are taken ASAP.
