Express your views on how to tackle flooding

There is still time for residents and businesses to express their views on how to deal with flooding in Derbyshire.

New powers were given to the Derbyshire County Council, and others like it, by the Government to help prevent, protect and prepare against the effects of possible flooding in the future.

One of the first tasks authority’s face, though, is producing a plan called the Local Flood Risk Management Strategy. But first the county council wants to know what local people think.

To give your views visit or pick up a questionnaire from your nearest library.

The closing date is December 7 and a draft plan will be drawn up next year.
