The Environment Agency is holding a public drop-in on Saturday, April 16th 2016, to provide more information about how they plan to reduce flood risk by upgrading defenses in Totnes.
By using the existing flood defenses the Environment Agency aims to carry out the improvements in a cost effective way which minimizes disruption in the town during construction.
The improvements will most likely include raising the existing walls and installing gates across existing slip ways. There may be a need for individual property protection in some locations. To see all these things in more detail, local residents are being encouraged to attend the drop-in at the Civic Hall.
The Environment Agency has already been out in Totnes speaking to some of the residents who live closest to the river.
