When I was elected in April 2016 flooding was a major issue in Pocklington Provincial, especially in Stamford Bridge, Wilberfoss, Pocklington and Sutton Upon Derwent.
There are currently extensive discussions as to the suitability of the proposed Pocklington Flood Alleviation Scheme.
I object to the proposals.
- Sutton Upon Derwent
Flooding for Sutton Upon Derwent is currently unresolved. I am working closely with local residents.
- Stamford Bridge
I instigated the installation of permanent pumps in Stamford Bridge which were installed in March 2017.
I instigated the installation of none return valves to be to fitted to Foss Beck to prevent flooding. This was completed in March 2017.
