Flooding incidents in St Enoder Parish

In December 2012 and March 2013, a number of properties in Fraddon, Indian Queens and Summercourt were flooded. On behalf of the Parish Council, I prepared a detailed report, which outlined the nature of the incidents and sought action from Cornwall Council to address the problems.

As a consequence of the report, improvements are being made to the road ditches and pipework along a section of the old A30, about one mile to the east of Indian Queens, in order to prevent the future flooding of two properties.

Cornwall Council has also devised a Property Level Protection (PLP) scheme across Cornwall and surveyors will soon be visiting a number of properties in Fraddon and Summercourt to explore what could be done to safeguard them against future flooding incidents.

There were also a number of incidents during the recent Christmas and New Year period – and a further report has already been sent to Cornwall Council to keep them informed about what has been happening locally.

If you have had problems with flood water in recent weeks, please get in contact with me, so that I can make representations on your behalf.
