Environment Agency officials are to seek public advice on plans to upgrade flood defences in a Devon town.
The body is drawing up designs for improvements to 1970s-built anti-flood infrastructure in Totnes. The town almost suffered flooding in 2008 and 2014.
The Environment Agency will hold a public session on Saturday 16 April to allow local people to give their views on the plans.
Environment Agency project manager Dan Boswell said: “We really want to see and hear from as many people as possible at the drop-in, as this will give us a really good idea of what people think of our designs before we submit them for planning.”
The improvements will most likely include raising the existing walls and installing gates across existing slip ways. There may be a need for individual property protection in some locations.
The drop-in session will be held at the Civic Hall in Totnes.
A report last month revealed that nearly £250M of damage was caused to key infrastructure across England and Wales by this winter’s flooding.
