Many parts of Norfolk were badly hit by heavy rainfall back in December, and in the first couple of months of this year. The flooding caused followed similar problems back in the summer of 2020, and on several occasions over the preceding few years – continuing an increasingly common trend.
In Wymondham specifically, over the past few months, I have been contacted by a growing number of constituents concerned by the high level of the River Tiffey and, having seen first-hand how high it has got numerous times over the past couple of years.
I do share local concerns that the proposed dwellings on land off Friarscroft Lane could exacerbate the current problems being faced in the area.
Therefore, I have urged the Council to give particular consideration to this issue.
