Flood prevention- an ongoing priority

I recently had a very constructive meeting with Danielle Anderson-Walker, Farms Liaison Officer at the Tyne Rivers Trust, and Corbridge Councillor Nick Oliver to discuss Natural Flood Management in the form of settlement ponds, leaky dams, tree planting and more. Anything that can be done to protect our towns and villages from the scale of flooding created by Storm Desmond in December 2015 is to be welcomed, and working together with our local farmers is one way of making a real difference.
