Horncastle Town Council have agreed to call a public meeting to discuss the next steps following the EA’s report, and the date and time has now been agreed as Thursday April 25, starting at 7pm at the Stanhope Hall in Horncastle.

This will give attendees the chance to discuss what comes next following the EA’s report, which which states that the flooding was caused by “extreme” rainfall, not the delay closing the Flood Alleviation System’s (FAS) sluice gate due to a fault with the sensor system.
