I guarantee the construction of Padiham's flood defence scheme, protecting businesses and residents from catastrophic flooding once and for all.
Padiham high street has seen a major uplift. But we're still waiting on the essential flood defence scheme to be completed - protecting people's homes and businesses
- Government funding has been secured and the scheme is now fully financed with work already having begun.
- I will deliver these defences as quickly as possible - to eliminate the risk to businesses and residents of catastrophic flooding.
- By keeping up the pressure on the Environment Agency, I will make sure we don't see slippage in the timetable for construction.
