Mid Norfolk Flooding

8th January 2021

Thousands of Mid Norfolk residents were devastated this Christmas by:

  • Flooding
  • Sewerage outflows
  • Accompanying power cuts
  • Poor response from UK Power Networks, Anglian Water and the Environment Agency

This isn’t good enough.

So I’ve convened a new Mid Norfolk Flood Partnership with local Breckland councillors, local Norfolk County councillors, local parishes, Anglian Water, Norfolk County Council Highways/Flooding officials and the Environment Agency to sort out what happened and why, and agree a more coordinated plan to ensure it never happens again.

Rest assured, I will provide further updates as we take this forward.
