Does Whitchurch suffer from flooding?
How will it be tackled?
How can you help?


Hampshire County Council, like other Councils across the country, is in the process of preparing a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy. The focus of this Strategy is on local flooding issues from surface water, groundwater, streams and ditches.

It will set out how the County Council intends to work with its partners to tackle flooding in the future. Importantly, it will also explain how local communities can help to protect themselves against flooding.

The County Council want your help by commenting on the draft version.

From Monday 24 September a draft version of the Local Flood Risk Management Strategy will be available ONLINE.
A short consultation document will provide an overview of the Strategy and an online form will allow you to make comments.

Public sessions
A series of public sessions are also being held to provide more information on the Strategy. Anyone who would like to find out more, ask questions, talk through concerns or share experiences of flooding can come along and County Council staff will be on hand to help.
The nearest session being held for Whitchurch residents is on:
Saturday 6 October at the Discovery Centre, Jewry Street, Winchester, SO23 8SB from 10am to 2pm.

The consultation period will close at noon on Monday 5 November, so please make sure that your comments reach the County Council in good time.
