Community Resilience: Managing Flood Risk - How can communities get involved?:

Jim McEwen from B&NES Drainage and Flooding Team and representatives from the Environment Agency

 

The Chew Valley and Keynsham Area Forums have previously had this presentation as their members raised flooding as a key issue.  The Somer Valley is also prone to flooding and we are therefore pleased to welcome Jim McEwen and representatives from the Environment Agency to update the Forum on their work and explain how communities can get involved.
