MP to host public meeting with Thames Water about flood resilience 

COTSWOLD MP Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown is due to host a meeting about flooding in the Cirencester area. 

A spokesperson said: “This is an opportunity for residents of Cirencester as well as South Cerney, Cerney Wick, Siddington, Fairford and Lechlade to hear and ask questions of the continued flood resilience work taking place. 

“But to also speak with officials from the county and district councils, town and parish councils, Thames Water and Environment Agency.”

More than 70 homes in Cirencester and the surrounding area flooded in the winter of 2020/21.

One family in Dugdale Road spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 2020 bailing flood water out of their house, whilst another house in Coxwell Street suffered flooding in their kitchen.
