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.
