Greg Clark and Carol Mackonochie respond to our letter regarding the recent flood events

Feb 28, 2020

On February 12 we wrote to our elected representatives, the Rt Hon Greg Clark MP and Councillor Carol Mackonochie, to ask how they will be working to ensure any development in the area does not add to the misery suffered by local residents.

A copy of the letter can be found here. On February 21 we received the following reply from Greg Clark, on which it was heartening to see he had taken the time to reinforce several key points.

Shortly afterwards, we received the following reply from Carol Mackonochie, who mirrored some of Mr Clark’s comments.
