Securing our flood defences

Millions have been invested in flood defences across South Ribble, like the recent £40m works on the River Ribble around Penwortham. But there’s always more to do. From Banks, to Penwortham, to Croston, Katherine will continue work to make sure our flood defences get the funding they need.

Let me know YOUR views on flood defences.

Works are well underway to install new flood defences along the River Ribble, helping to protect Penwortham and Preston from floods. I've met with the Environment Agency on a few occasions to hear from them about how works are progressing, but I would also love to hear from you about the situation and any impact they're having on your community.
