Belvedere residents can grill Thames Water over flooding

Belvedere residents can grill Thames Water about flooding at a special public meeting.

There is a history of the problem in the area, particularly in Sutherland Road and Waterfield Close.

The land, made up of clay and peat, absorbs water slowly but the main cause is sewer flooding.

Cllr Melvin Seymour, said: “We are trying to reach a solution with Thames Water to help our residents and local businesses.”

A Thames Water spokesman said: “We look forward to what we hope will be a productive dialogue with councillors and residents.”

Residents should submit their query in advance to Felicity Page by email, or call 0203 045 3593 by 5pm on Friday 12 October, ahead of the meeting at 7.30pm on October 18 at the Civic Centre.
