It was following these floods that the local Council decided action was required. The Environment Agency provided sufficient funding for flood mitigation measures to be installed to 66 properties that were worst hit in the area.
UK Flood Barriers were awarded the project to fit flood mitigation solutions to these 66 properties identified. An initial survey was conducted to determine the best products to use for each property, the results from each survey concluded that a range of Flood Angel® products would be used.
The products included, Anti-Flood Airbricks, Flood Defender™ Barriers, 50mm Backwater Valves, Waterstop , 160mm/110m Non-Return Valve and vent covers.
The project was split into three phases in order to accommodate all properties involved.
