Hi, I’m Ian Davison and I’m the Project Manager for the investigations we’re carrying out in the Bedlington & Cambois drainage catchment as part of our Rainwise initiative.
We want to be prepared for the future so we are working proactively to understand any potential flood risk in the area and see if there are any opportunities to carry out flood risk reduction projects.
This means getting you involved too, so we want you to tell us about your previous experiences of flooding or any issues surrounding surface water in the area.
You can leave your comments on this update or get in touch using the ‘contact us’ button at the top of the page.
We will also be letting you know about the small steps you can take to manage surface water around your property, which can help reduce the risk of flooding in your community as a whole.
Over the coming few weeks we’ll be out and about in the area carrying out surveys and collecting data. If you see members of the project team carrying out these investigation works, please do say hello and feel free to chat to them about Rainwise and your experiences.
As always, if we do identify any opportunities for flood risk reduction projects in the area, we will let you know and seek your views on our proposals.
