Flooding bill planned!

I'm at the Labour party conference this week having taken some holiday from work.
Lots of ideas and a real buzz!
One thing that I particularly was pleased to hear at a fringe meeting on flooding is that there are firm plans for a new bill in the next few months to address flooding.  This is really good news for parts of Whitley that have had so many problems with flooding in the past.  Full details are not yet anounced but the government has taken on board all the recommendations of the independent review.

There was also a representative of Yorkshire water at the meeting, and it was good to see one water company at least engaging well on the issue!
