The Environment Agency's plans for flood defence measures for Mimmshall Brook are to be discussed at a public meeting on Thursday, October 24.

The meeting, at the Royal Veterinary College in Hawkshead Lane, comes almost two years after some of the worst flooding seen in the area for 15 years.

A spokesperson for the Environment Agency said the meeting had been called to consult local residents on the proposed flood alleviation scheme.

On October 29, 2000, some residents evacuated their homes after Mimmshall Brook broke its banks following the worst storms to hit the south of England since 1987. Others moved away the following morning.

During those floods two years ago, Swanland Road was under water from the ford at Mimms Hall Cottages at the south end through to Warrengate Road which in turn was flooded the full length to the cottages at Water End.

The flooding extended several hundred metres up Bradmore Lane making the only approach to Swanland Road via Welham Green.
