Grendon Flood Action Group

Update - Grendon Flood Action Group

On Tuesday, 16th April the Grendon Flood Action Group, chaired by myself, held our first multi-agency meeting at Grendon Community Centre.

Representatives from NWBC (Planning), WCC (Lead Flood Authority), WCC Highways, Environment Agency, Severn Trent Water and the National Flood Forum Charity met together to discuss flooding issues in and around Grendon and address the action points which the Grendon Flood Action Group had discussed and scripted for the meeting.

We discussed a variety of issues from preventative measures to planning applications and the Environment Agency kindly provided information on who is responsible for preventative maintenance of the Penmire Brook and the River Anker. The Environment Agency have agreed to attend a walk around Grendon with members of the Grendon Flood Action Group so we can bring the different issues to their attention.

Kevin Blount from WCC, the Lead Flood Authority, has proposed a separate meeting with the flood action group on the 7th May 2019 as he would like to discuss the proposals being put in place by WCC to prevent flooding by improving & altering the infrastructure in Grendon and the wider area.

There will be a further multi-agency meeting on Tuesday, 17th September to follow up on all of the issues raised.
