Funding to help protect homes

Have your say

Flood prevention measures will be fitted to 48 homes funded by a £274,000 grant from the Environment Agency.

Barnsley Council was successful in its bid for the money which will be used on houses in Bolton-upon-Dearne, which were flooded in June 2007.

The work covers homes in Mexborough Road, Lowfield Road, Meadowgates and Riverside Gardens.

Flood consultation surveys will shortly be carried out in a bid to assess what measures will need to be put in place at the various properties in the area.
