Last year the Parish Council was approached by some residents of Kerswell who were concerned about incidents of flooding in the centre of the village particularly during and after sudden cloudbursts.
The Parish Council involved East Devon District Council and the Flood Risk Management Team at Devon County Council and the consultants JBA were commissioned by EDDC to carry at an appraisal of the issues. Their findings were shared at a public consultation earlier this year and as a result their report has been updated. The latest iteration can be found below and will be posted on the EDDC website shortly:
The Parish Council will discuss the next steps at their next meeting.
