Caston Parish Council
CHAIRMAN: Mr. J. Chapman VICE CHAIRMAN: Mr. P. Hall
A polite request from the Parish Council.
DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH FLOODING?
Caston Parish Council would like your help to create a detailed map of the areas of the village, which suffer from any form of excess water, either on or around your property.
For example, does the road outside your property become filled with standing water after rain? Does it drain away slowly creating a hazardous area? Do the ditches near your property fill too quickly? Does your garden flood?
We would appreciate any information you would like to give us regarding wet areas.
On the reverse of this page, please state the area of the village in which you live, giving your address if you wish. Describe the problem as clearly as you can or draw a diagram if you prefer.
As you know the area around your property best, with your help we will then be able to determine where the real problem areas are within the village.
We will collect your response one week from today. Please leave it in your post box or in an obvious spot, in the plastic bag provided, so that a member of the Parish Council can collect it.
Alternatively, return it to us at the next meeting on Monday 12th May at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.
Thank you for your assistance.
