Update on December flooding in Northbridge Street
22nd January 2021

 

A message from Nick Brown, Chairman of the Parish Council

 

I wish to reassure everyone that the Parish Council has been lobbying hard this month for work to avoid future surface water flooding in Northbridge Street from runoff from the A21. We are liaising with Highways England (responsible for the A21), East Sussex Highways (responsible for local roads/drains), County and District Councillors and our MP, Hugh Merriman. The matter was discussed at our Parish Council meeting this week and, in preparation for Storm Christoph, the Parish Council provided sand and sandbags to residents at most risk. We are endeavouring to liaise with and keep updated affected residents. If you wish to get in touch please nick.brown@salehurst-pc.org.uk
