UK: Action on Flooding Welcomed by CLA

Action on Flooding Welcomed by CLA

CLA, the membership organisation for owners of land, property and businesses in rural England and Wales, has welcomed Environment Secretary Owen Paterson’s written ministerial statement on reducing the threat of future flooding.

CLA President Henry Robinson said: “Mr Paterson’s written ministerial statement and in particular his commitment to dredging – initially of eight kilometre stretches of the Brue and Parrett – is good news, as is the pledge to review the need for further dredging.

“However, dredging is only part of the answer. Landowners, local authorities, the Environment Agency and drainage boards all need to work together on this.”

Mr Robinson reiterated the CLA’s call for a sustainable and funded system in which costs, rights and responsibilities are fairly shared.
