Construction works on the Godalming Flood Alleviation Scheme are now in the finishing stages, according to the Environment Agency.

The project is being carried out by Mackley working as part of Team Van Oord and on behalf of a partnership comprising the EA, Surrey County Council, Waverley Borough Council, Godalming Town Council, Thames Water, Scottish and Southern Electricity and the Godalming Flood Group.

Godalming has a history of flooding, with 4 notable events in recent years in 1968, 1990, 2000 and 2013. During the most recent 2013 flood, Meadrow and Catteshall Road area were flooded, with access from Meadrow to Godalming severely restricted.

To reduce flooding in the Meadrow/Catteshall area, the project team has built a new flood wall along the banks of the Hell Ditch. This will reduce the likelihood flooding to at least 90 properties in the area.

As reported earlier, the planning permission for the project was granted in May 2018. The site works commenced in October 2018.

The target date for completion of construction works is late summer 2019, subject to weather conditions.
