Middle Deal Flooding

I have called a meeting with Kent County Council and Southern Water to discuss the unacceptable flooding that residents have been experiencing in Middle Deal. The meeting will be held on 16th October at 9am in Albert Road. All affected residents are welcome to join the gathering.

This is the fourth time residents have suffered flooding in recent times and is totally unacceptable. I have previously met with the Environment Agency, Kent County Council, Southern Water and Dover District Council to make the case for infrastructure improvements. Deal is a town on the rise and with more homes being built, it is important that we have the infrastructure in place to cope. We've had many promises.

Yet clearly action to date has not been adequate. I am very disappointed that flooding has happened again and I hope residents will come and join the meeting.
