VOLUNTEERS WANTED FOR COUNTY COUNCIL LED ROAD FLOOD WARNING SCHEME

 

*  Community Road Warning Schemes are being set up in various communities in Warwickshire where flooding occurs.

 

*  Where local knowledge is vital, this requires a few volunteers prepared to set up their own community scheme under Council guidance.

 

*  Such a scheme for Brailes would have Parish Council support and Warwickshire County Council would give training, support and supply essential equipment.

 

*  With such a local  support group in place early warnings could be given to help those directly at risk of damage from flooding to property.

 

*  Passing drivers would be made aware to the of risk to cars becoming stranded in deep water, 

(2 such at the Sutton Brook bridge in the flood of March 2016), to the damaging of adjacent properties with their vehicle bow waves and also in sending heavy spray up walls of properties immediately adjacent to the main road as in near the garage.

 

The 6 present members of the Brailes Flood Group are normally heavily engaged in flood mitigation in periods of storm rainfall.

 

Anyone interested in helping in this community based effort should contact:-

BFG Project Manager, Ken Taylor on tel: (01689) 686645  email: kenfloodwatch@gmail.com  

OR 

Parish Councillor John Lloyd Tel: 07929 9144292  email: cllrjlloyd@brailesparishcouncil.co.uk

 

As soon as a viable small group (possibly representing both Upper and Lower Brailes) is got together, a meeting will be arranged in Brailes with a member of the CSW Resilience Team for advice on how such a scheme can be set up and run.
