Preparations for floods ‘need urgent review’
Norfolk County Council’s flood preparations should be independently verified, says Ed Maxfield, leader of the Lib Dem opposition group.
County Hall has a flood risk plan to ensure it can react efficiently to any incidents and says a review of its policies will be complete this year.
But Mr Maxfield said: “The flood risk plan is five years old – a lot has changed in that time. We’ve had five years of house building and cuts to local government spending. We need to be sure there is enough money in the pot to tackle the problem.”
