Help tackle flooding in East Thundersley

20 July 2016

Essex County Council wants to hear from residents and businesses in East Thundersley on plans for a new scheme to alleviate the flood risk to the village.

The flood alleviation scheme will look at managing rainwater during heavy rain and will be based around Thundersley Primary School, Cedar Hall Primary School, and West Wood.

The community consultation event about the proposed scheme will take place on Thursday 21 July at 18.30 at Runnymede Hall, Kiln Road, Benfleet, SS7 1TF. There is no need to book in advance.

The event will give residents an opportunity to understand the scheme and ask any questions about the project. To find out more please email
