Many residents of Rayleigh will remember the terrible flooding that unfortunate homeowners experienced in 2013 & 2014. Today we have received details from Essex County Council of the proposed flood alleviation scheme.
There may be some relief for those with flood risk in the area to the west of Sweyne Park School, and to properties on Pearsons Avenue, Vernon Avenue, Victoria Avenue and Cheapside West, amongst others. Proposed is a 2 part scheme
- The first part of the scheme will involve making alterations to the existing pond in Sweyne Park and the second element of the scheme will involve making an earth bund on the Sweyne Park School Field. This is all of course subject to planning consent.
We will update residents as we find out more information
