Flood risk and climate change is and will be very unpredictable over the few next decades. We support the Councils views and recognise the need to protect the larger populated areas. We would not want to see the flood plain areas being reduced to enhance housing developments. Likewise, the regular clearing/cleaning out of drainage dykes/ditches must be maintained.

Support the councils views and recognise need to protect populated areas from flooding.
