Flood advice for village

Have your say

VILLAGERS concerned about the threat of flooding can get advice and support at a drop-in session.

Residents can meet the Environment Agency’s project team and find out about the work it has been doing in Wallington, Fareham, and shape its long-term flooding plan.

The village is prone to flooding as the River Wallington runs through it.

In December 2012, a severe flood warning was issued as high tides and heavy rainfall caused flooding and cracks appeared in the river wall due to the volume of water.

The cracks were repaired in August 2013 and work to strengthen the wall was done in spring last year.

Find out more about the work at the drop-in session at Wallington Village Hall, in Broadcut, Fareham, on Thursday from 3pm until 7pm.
