Flooding

February 11, 2014

The Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change has passed on this information with a request that it be passed on by all who receive it. This we have pleasure in doing.

The current situation:

  • 8 flood warnings in place for next couple of days including Ravens Ait.
  • River levels are currently high in Thames Ditton effecting Kingston.
  • Rainfall in next few days is not expected to be heavy.

Action taken by Kingston Council:

  • Multi-agency flood plan is in place.
  • Kingston council staff are door knocking and delivering information to those most likely to be affected (areas such as Queens Promenade, Queens Reach and Thameside, including checking on vulnerable people. If you are aware of any such residents – only those likely to be affected by flooding – please inform the council by telephoning the contact centre on 0208 547 5000 and asking that an ‘on call street scene officer’ be informed.
  • The Hawker Centre and Kingston University’s Kingston Hill sites have been identified as centres ready to take residents should the need arise.
  • If such contingency plans need extra support then the military is on standby ready to assist.

The whole situation is continuously being monitored for any changes or developments.
