Have your say

RESIDENTS affected by recent flooding are being invited to an event to help plan for future emergencies.

It is hoped this will give Durham County Council and other relevant agencies the chance to gather as much information as possible from Chester-le-Street residents affected by the summer’s flooding.

There will also be a chance get information to help prepare for any future emergencies and to see samples of types of flood defence which are available on the market.

Dave Wilcox, strategic highways manager, said: “It’s a chance for those affected by flooding in Chester-le-Street to provide us with useful information which may help us in future.

“Some information has already been gathered, but this is a chance to get more.”

The event takes place on Thursday, September 27, between 2pm and 7pm at the Parish Centre on Church Chare in the town.
