Consultation description

We want to know which options you support for managing flood risk, and why, for:

  • Black Sluice pumping station
  • Lower Black Sluice catchment
  • Upper Black Sluice catchment

And which options people do not support, and why.

In addition, we are keen to hear from any local groups, businesses and organisations who could work with us to deliver the options.

You may also have evidence, for example, photographs, dates or eyewitness accounts of flooding that could help us build a business case to apply for government funding.
