Llandinam residents invited to flood risk drop-in event
Llandinam residents are being invited to learn about the work being done to address flood risk in the area in light of the flood impacts experienced in the area during Storm Franklin in February 2022.
The event is being delivered by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) officers and will also include staff from Powys County Council, Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust and Severn Dee.
The aim of the session is to highlight NRW’s flood warning and informing services, with a particular focus on how residents can sign up to NRW’s flood warning service. Officers will also work with the community to support the development of a community owned Community Flood Plan, designed to help the whole community in its response before, during and after a flood.
NRW officers will also inform residents about the on-going and future work planned for the area.
Sara Pearson, NRW Operations Manager for Flood Risk and Water Management said: “We know that Storm Franklin had a real effect on Llandinam and our thoughts are with those that were affected at that time.
“NRW is working with the community to take proactive steps to reduce the risk of flooding in this community in the future, and to help residents take their own steps to reduce flood risk.
“The drop-in event will be a great opportunity for locals to come along to learn more about our work in the area and to ask questions.”
Residents can attend the event at any time between 2pm and 6:30pm at the Llandinam Village Hall on 13 September.

As a mark of respect and recognition of the current period of national mourning following the passing of Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II, we have decided to postpone the drop-in session we had arranged for 13 September.
The session has therefore been rearranged for 11 October and will focus on the effects that Storm Franklin had on the community in February 2022 and will be an opportunity for local people to sign up to our flood warning service.
Further details will follow and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
