The East Riding of Yorkshire Council and other agencies involved is to undertake reviews in order to learn as much as possible from the recent flooding events. This will guide the various statutory agencies, including the ERYC, on improvements both to the drainage infrastructure, as well as refining emergency plans and procedures for the future. These reviews will be focused in two ways; firstly on the way in which the various agencies dealt with the emergency and secondly a review of the broader aspects, including the infrastructure issues identified above.
Many of you as individuals and organisations within our community may have observations and suggestions that they wish to put forward to be considered as part of these reviews. I would welcome any contributions of this kind as part of the data gathering stage for the reviews. In discussions with local residents within a number of communities over the past 2 or 3 weeks there are a number of residents, farmers or others who may have a valuable contribution to make in this regard.
I will be collating and passing on all those comments from people with whom I’ve already spoken, or received emails/letters, but I would welcome any further comments, observations or suggestions.
If you wish to send comments, observations and suggestions to me by post at the following address: Cllr Paul Robinson, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Beverley, HU17 9BA.
or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
