Flooding – Stourpaine Parish Council

As you know the very heavy rainfall in July meant that the Stour and therefore the Iwerne burst their banks and flooded the lower part of the village,in particular Havelins. One property was very badly affected and others only just escaped. We therefore asked the Environment Agency if it would send an officer to speak to the Parish Council and affected/interested residents to discuss what it might be possible to do to prevent such occurrences in the future.

The Environment Agency agreed and Steve Malpass, one of their technical officers, is coming to the next Parish Council meeting – at 7.00pm on Thursday 20th September in the Village Hall. Do come along to hear what he says, ask questions and take part in the discussion.

Parish Clerk
