Croscombe Flood Focus
Croscombe Flood Committee
Croscombe experiences flooding regularly, which the Parish Council Flood Committee, (formed after the October 2020 floods), is committed to reviewing. The Committee works with Somerset County Council (SCC) and other agencies gathering information to inform us in taking action to reduce future floods. It also works to help the village and parishioners be prepared.
This work began in earnest at the first Flood Hub held on 20 March 2021.
