Residents urged to supply information and pictures following recent flooding in Snaith and East Cowick

Following the recent significant flooding in Snaith and East Cowick, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, in its role as Lead Local Flood Authority, has launched an investigation into the cause of the flooding and the actions of the agencies involved in responding to the flooding, and will produce proposals in response to it.

The council is looking for local residents affected to contribute to the investigation, which is known as a Section 19 report.

Paul Abbott, head of housing, transportation and public protection, said : “We really want to hear from people affected by the recent flooding in the Snaith and East Cowick area  – they may have photos or videos of the flooding and its effects, and we would like them to share them with us, or indeed any information that they feel might be useful.

“The investigation is an opportunity for the local community to get fully involved, and help to shape the final report which we produce, which will include recommendations for the future.”

Anybody who has information to share is asked to email their pictures, videos or general information to flooding.information@eastriding.gov.uk

When the report into the flooding has been completed, and has gone through consultation, it will be approved by the council’s Cabinet and then formally published.
