Harriett urges progress on Tenbury flood consultation

16th September 2020

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin has called on the Environment Agency to press on with consulting local people on the development of the Tenbury Wells flood defence scheme.

And the MP has quizzed Floods Minister Rebecca Pow on the guidelines which allow the agency to carry out the consultation in a Covid-secure way. Harriett joined local councillors and Environment Agency experts on a walking tour of the town to look at some of the challenges faced building a permanent flood scheme.

Harriett commented: “I have quizzed the Minister in the House of Commons and have been reassured that the consultation is able to be carried out in a socially distant way.

“I am keen to see this get underway as quickly as possible. Local people are eager to share their views and we need to make sure as many people as possible get the chance to have their say.

“I understand that Covid-19 does present some challenges but I am adamant that the process needs to get underway soon and I am pleased that the Department for the Environment has backed m on this one.”
