Questionnaire on the Pilley flood alleviation scheme

Areas of Cheltenham on its southern edge can often be susceptible to flooding associated with rapid surface water run-off from the Cotswold escarpment. The most recent and significant example of this being the exceptional rainfall/flood event of July 2007 at which time, numerous properties were affected by floodwater. Consequently, and as part of an ongoing commitment to reduce flood risk in the town, we are commissioning a catchment study to look at the causes of flooding in the Pilley/Leckhampton area, after which, potential flood mitigation measures could be developed where appropriate.

To help determine the exact extent of any problem and to consider whether or not there is a financially viable solution to what may be quite complex issues, it is important to gather as much relevant and reasonably accurate information from local residents as possible.


A brief questionnaire has been set up and we would be most grateful if you took a few minutes to complete it.

Please email completed questionnaires to no later than 16 October 2015.

Alternatively, you can print your completed questionnaire and post it to: Cheltenham Borough Council, Built Environment, FREEPOST CM32, Municipal Offices, Promenade, Cheltenham, GL50 9SA (for the attention of Geoff Beer).

Thank you in anticipation of your help and cooperation. If you have any queries about this matter, please do not hesitate to contact
