Last night I attended my first Wilberfoss Parish Council meeting.
Non Return Valves
Some solutions to flooding are very complex and costly yet in Wilberfoss they are simple and cost-effective. Wilberfoss Parish Council have asked me to request ERYC for non-return valves on the outlet pipes that lead from the Foss Beck on Beckside. Thus when the beck hasn’t actually burst its banks but the level has reached the outlet pipes, the road won’t get flooded like it currently does.
Prolonged flood cuts off domestic vehicle access to over 150 properties.
