Message from the Environment Agency and Forest of Dean District Council – Rapid Response Catchment Door knocking

We are writing to you to notify you that Forest of Dean District Council in partnership with the Environment Agency will be undertaking door knocking to raise awareness of the Rapid Response Catchments in your area.

Following the flooding in Boscastle in 2004, the Environment Agency undertook modelling across the country to identify other areas that could have a similar risk of flooding in this way.

Two areas were identified in the Forest of Dean – Lydney and Cinderford (including Drybrook, Ruspidge and Soudley).

We undertook community engagement with these areas in 2017, however the plans have recently been reviewed and we want to raise awareness with the residents that could be affected again. Therefore, we will be undertaking door knocking along the Cinderford Brook area on Thursday 4th April and in the Lydney area on Tuesday 9th April.

We will be providing a letter to each of the properties in the potentially affected area, and will be asking local businesses to display the poster. Examples are attached for your information
