The Committee were provided with a summary report for the evidence received during the Scrutiny Review of Flooding Resilience and areas for possible recommendations.

Members made the following comments:-
- Once Londonderry Bridge was finished it would be beneficial for another site visit. It was also requested that information be sent to the 150 affect properties to inform them how this work has improved the flooding resilience.
- Members requested a policy seminar or information session for those is flood affected wards to provide information on what they can do in a flood situation to help both officers/agencies and residents.

Officers informed members that if a flooding incident was to happen in their wards it would be helpful for residents and/or Cllrs to collate evidence for officers to build a picture of how and why it had happened.

Members were requested to send any further comments or areas for recommendations to the scrutiny officer.
