Important Notice for Residents with piped and open ditches on or edging their property

It is fast becoming the time of year when we need to think about the state of Minstead’s land drainage network. As the rain begins in earnest and leaves begin to fall, all riparian owners (those who have watercourses on or bordering their properties, including just outside their boundary hedge, wall or fence) should be looking at the state of their drainage ditches, culverts and other watercourses to ensure the clear transference of rain water and a reduced risk of localised flooding.

On the PC & Village Hall Noticeboards please find a poster detailing what responsibilities riparian owners have and guidance on how to undertake this maintenance to reduce flooding from surface water after rain event. This will also be included in the forthcoming Minstead Mail.

 

If you have any further enquiries regarding this or any other areas of flood risk management, please visit this website at https://www.hants.gov.uk/landplanningandenvironment/environment/flooding
