Waterways and flooding – how much do you understand about Riparian Rights?

Your Parish Council is currently working closely with a number of agencies to draw up a Fenstanton Flood Resilience Plan. This includes working in partnership with Cambs County Council, the Lead Flood Authority in the County.

As part of CCC’s Community Flood Action Programme, it is updating its riparian guidance document to make it more useful for those living next to a watercourse. As this document is aimed at residents and landowners, we wish to seek your views and get a better understanding of your awareness of riparian issues. CCC has prepared a short survey (5 questions).

A link to the survey is here: https://forms.office.com/r/5HQbNqGtba We plan to keep the survey open until 30th September.


In addition, we would be grateful of any photos you may have of watercourses in and around Fenstanton, to include in the guidance document and on-line mapping we are using.

If anyone would like to submit photos, please email them to clerk@fenstantonparishcouncil.org.uk describing the location and include your name for crediting purposes.

Thank you

Fenstanton Parish Council
