Flooding and Eardisland Flood Response Plan (EFRP)

In 2021 The Environment Agency commissioned a report to consider if any steps could be taken to reduce flood risk in Eardisland. The Report and the appendices can be accessed below. Please be aware some of the documents are large files:
Eardisland IA Report V1.0
Appendix A – Site Visit Notes
Appendix E – Environmental Checklist
Appendix F – NEAS Screening Determination
Appendix H – Costing
Appendix I – PFC

The notes of the Community Meeting with the Environment Agency about the 2021 report  are available here. It includes the presentation slides, however if you would like the slides on their own, please contact the Parish Clerk (parish.clerk@eardisland-pc.gov.uk).

Eardisland Flood Response Plan November 2021 v7

Following the flood on 21.1.21, a review of how the EFRP worked has been undertaken and some changes have been made.

  1. A Controller is needed to act as a point of contact for Volunteers and parishioners to ring – this role will be undertaken by the Debbie Cottam. Ring 01544 388878 during a flood event only if you need to get a message to a Volunteer, a parishioner or a member of the Management Group. At all other times please contact the Locality Flood Warden for your area, details below
  2. The road barriers and road closure signs need to be placed as soon as the Environment Agency warning is received, to stop people driving into the village and getting stuck in flood water
  3. The road closure barriers will be placed by the caravan park drive on the Leominster side. There will be another warning sign further out by Kingfisher House
  4. The road closure barriers will be placed between Meadowmead drive and 30mph signs on the Pembridge side. There will be another warning sign close to Legion Cross junction
  5. On Burton Lane, access past the barriers will be possible to Burton Firs, Keilcroft and Old Pearmain only, no access to Eardisland village
  6. An update document for the Plan is published below – giving details of change/additions of Volunteers and the above information.

We still need 4-6 more parishioners who are willing to volunteer and take an active part in the parish flood response. We need residents who do not have major flood issues themselves and who are fit and able to undertake physical jobs to help those who are vulnerable eg. lifting furniture, cleaning out after flooding etc.

Please join this vital parish response. Please contact the Parish Clerk by email parish.clerk@eardisland-pc.gov.uk to volunteer.
