|Following the major floods in 2007, a planning application has been submitted to West Berkshire Council for a flood bund north of Tull Way. |
"This bund will hold water back temporarily at times of exceptional volumes of surface water run-off, which the drainage system cannot immediately cope with. The bund will then release the stored water into the existing drainage network over a longer period, thereby allowing time for better management of these exceptional volumes of water."
Congratulations to all those members of the Thatcham Flood Forum based at Thatcham Town Council, who have worked so hard over many months to get this project underway. I am sure that all the residents who were flooded in 2007 (my family included) will be extremely grateful.
