Flood protection in Ponteland

I would like to draw the attention of all Ponteland residents to a drop-in event which is taking place tomorrow (Wednesday 23rd January) about potential flood protection measures. The event will be taking place at Ponteland Memorial Hall from 2.30pm-6.30pm, and residents are invited to attend to find out more about measures being considered by the Environment Agency to protect local properties from flooding. The Environment Agency currently maintains flood walls, embankments and pumping stations in Ponteland and is working to improve flood defences further. I know that flooding is a concern for many Ponteland residents and I would encourage you to go along to the event tomorrow to find out more.
