Living with Water Household flooding Survey in Haltemprice, East Riding

By | Consultations, Front Page News, Local News | No Comments

Deadline 31st January

The Energy and Environment Institute in the University of Hull is surveying residents in Haltemprice (Cottingham North & South, Hessle, Tranby including Anlaby, Willerby and Kirk Ella). They are asking residents if they have been affected flooding, what they know about flooding and their main concerns. You don’t need to have been affected by flooding to take part and all responses are anonymous.

The aims of the survey are to help Living with Water (a partnership between Hull City Council, Yorkshire Water, the Environment Agency and East Riding of Yorkshire Council) to reduce the impacts of flooding and increase resilience.  The survey is a great way to feed in your experiences and views

You can take part in the survey here

The person managing the survey is Sam Ramsden, who will be very happy to answer any questions you may have:  sam.ramsden@hull.ac.uk or 07887 364381
