"We have already carried out specialist work to remove tree roots from around 400m of the drainage system in the Harap Road area at a cost of £20,000 to date. As soon as conditions allow, further work will be done to remove a build-up of silt in a drainage chamber.
“We are confident these measures will help to alleviate problems with flooding in the area and we will remain in contact with local residents as we progress with the scheme.”
