A PUBLIC meeting regarding the flooding of 2013 and 2014 will take place tonight 7.00pm at the Council Chamber Runnymede.
Officers are expected to address the local authority’s shortcomings as highlighted in the Essex County Council Lead flood Authority’s Report and the Government Office of Science section 19 Review.
This is a meeting open to the Public that appears to have not been made Public knowledge.
It will NOT be webcast.
This may lead the Scrutiny committee’s work to be considered not open and transparent, especially as previously the Environment Agency, Anglian Water and Essex Highways have all taken part in meetings, open and webcast, so that residents were able to hear their organisations part and shortcomings leading up to, during and after the flooding incidents.
Our Local Authority consider this meeting un-necessary to transmit.
