The drop-in will be held from 3.30pm to 7.30pm on Thursday 25 February at:
Rugeley Leisure Centre
The Environment Agency and local council will be on hand to provide the latest information about the scheme.
The town centre is at risk of flooding from Rising Brook. The proposed scheme will help to reduce the risk to over 114 residential properties and 157 commercial properties and also forms an integral part of the local council’s plans to regenerate parts of the town centre.
The proposal includes constructing an embankment on Hagley playing fields to hold water from Rising Brook during a flood.
Environment Agency project officer, Will Groves said:
As well as helping to reduce the risk of flooding for residents and businesses, the scheme also involves improving the local playing fields and reinstating the bridge. This drop in event is another chance for residents and businesses to see these proposals and ask any questions.
If you’re unable to attend the drop-in event you can request to see the new plans and send comments by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
