Public engagement over flooding plans

Steve Brine joined up with Cllr Patrick Cunningham on Friday 6th October, as they viewed a potential Outer Winchester Flood Alleviation Scheme at Littleton Memorial Hall.

The session highlighted proposed changes that Hampshire County Council, Winchester City Council and local parish councils have discussed to provide more resilience from Littleton across Springvale to Headbourne Worthy and King's Worthy.

Steve Brine said: "The floods of Winter 2014 were such a nightmare for parts of Littleton and the Worthies, and I think residents are genuinely pleased to see ideas being discussed.

"We have, of course, already seen some changes such as work undertaken by the residents themselves in Pitter Close but we now need the County to piece it all together across the three villages.

"I was a little underwhelmed by this exhibition to be honest but hope it was a useful exercise in public engagement because whatever is done must command wide support. I think we all should reserve judgement until final plans are published in the Spring."
