Flooding in Dickens Heath on Sunday May 27th 2018
The Parish Councillors watched with horror as the flooding hit Dickens Heath on Sunday, with one Parish Councillor and many residents dealing with their properties being flooded. We need to be reassured that better flood defences are put in place for the future, and the Parish Council have requested a meeting to discuss this. Solihull MBC are the authority responsible for drainage and flooding, and their senior officers and Chief Executive Nick Page are well aware of the flooding that hit Dickens Heath on Sunday. Borough Councillor Ken Hawkins is being very proactive – speaking with residents, representatives of Bellway as well as SMBC officers. Ken has updated the Parish Council Chair this morning, and we are hopeful that we will hear back before too long with some real reassurance for residents regarding any future extreme weather events.
