Runoff grant scheme

Surface water runoff (from Wikipedia)

Do you know of any instances of flooding where water is running off the surface of land and causing (or potentially causing) damage to neighbouring properties?

This DEFRA scheme provides money that needs to be applied for by September. It would allow the landowner to pay for works to reduce flooding.

Contact the Parish Council if you feel you know of where an application could be made in Grampound with Creed.

New website design

This is a new website design for Grampound with Creed. We hope you like it. It will allow for easier updating by many authors working together keeping different sections up to date.
