Proposed Godmanchester Flood Alleviation Scheme

Two public exhibitions are being held by the Environment Agency next week for local people to comment on the proposed design of the Godmanchester flood alleviation scheme before planning permission is applied for.

The public exhibitions will give the community the opportunity to view the proposed designs, which incorporate many of the points raised during the consultation stages in 2006 and 2008. 

Agency staff will be on hand to answer questions along with design and environmental consultants who will be able to provide further details of the proposals and answer any queries.

The public exhibitions will be held at the Queen Elizabeth School, Post Street, Godmanchester on:

Friday 17 September (12pm to 7pm)
Sunday 19 September (11am to 5pm)

The flood alleviation scheme will reduce the flood risk to 560 homes and businesses in Godmanchester, which in turn will help to reduce risk to life and avoid the stress, trauma and disruption that is associated with major flooding.

Ian Dodson, Environment Agency project manager, said: “We are holding the public exhibitions for local residents and those interested in finding out more about the scheme. The designs have considered previous feedback from the 2006 and 2008 consultation events. We have also liaised with Godmanchester Town Council and Huntingdonshire District Council in drawing these designs together.

“The effective flood defences have been designed in keeping with the landscape, heritage and character of this historic town. The scheme is to protect the residents of Godmanchester from flooding and we are keen for them to see the designs before the proposals go to planning.”

For more information on the public exhibition or queries about the scheme please contact Ian Dodson at the Environment Agency on 01733 464316.
