Villages get cash for flood control work

TWO villages around Bredon Hill look set to benefit from cash injections for flood control improvements.

Members of Wychavon District Council’s executive committee has agreed to give £2,000 each to the parish councils at Beckford and Elmley Castle.

The money became available because £5,000 from the Parish Flood Alleviation Support Grant Scheme became available unexpectedly.

It had been allocated to repair a collapsed culvert in the Offenham area, until it was discovered that the county council would be paying for that work.

In Beckford, the money will go towards solving a flooding problem at Cheltenham Road.

At Elmley Castle, the cash will be added to £5,000 Wychavon has already contributed to a £30,000 flood-relief scheme planned for the village. The remaining £1,000 will be kept as a contingency.
