Work is underway to identify potential areas of flood risk in Staindrop. The Parish Council received a presentation from the Environment Agency at its November 2015 meeting.
Following a detailed hydraulic modelling study for Staindrop, the Environment Agency will be revising the Flood Map. This will show the most up to date representation of flood risk and the changes to the existing flood zones will come into effect following the next quarterly update in February 2016. The Agency is currently looking into the feasibility of a flood alleviation scheme to protect properties at risk in Staindrop.
