Drop-In Sessions on Flood Risk Management

The Environment Agency will hold two drop-in sessions to discuss options for reducing flood risk in Coggeshall, Feering and Kelvedon.

The three villages suffered from significant flooding in 2001, and more recently in 2012 and 2014.

This increased frequency of flooding, together with a new policy for funding flood risk management schemes has prompted a review of options for the area which has recently been completed.

Graham Verrier, Area Flood Risk Manager for the Environment Agency, said: “We have a shortlist of possible options for reducing flood risk in Coggeshall, Feering and Kelvedon, and we would like to discuss these options with local residents and businesses. It is crucial that any options considered for the villages are developed with their involvement.”

“We do not have the funding to deliver a flood risk management scheme alone, so we will need to continue to work closely with businesses, the community and other potential funding partners.”

To discuss these options the Environment Agency will be holding drop-ins at the following times and locations:

  • Wednesday 15 July, 2pm to 7pm, Kelvedon Institute, 78 High Street CO5 9AA;
  • Friday 17 July, 2pm to 7pm, Christ Church, Stoneham Street, Coggeshall CO6 1UH.
