Having visited Irwell Vale village not long after the water receded, it is clear that not enough has been done to prevent a repeat of the 2012 floods (evidently). The Government haven't done enough despite promises to do so. Lancashire County Council are renovating the bridge and have put in a temporary bridge to allow access to the village.
@LancashireCC Cabinet member for Floods, Councillor Clare Pritchard (@cpritchard73) recently visited Irwell Vale village. Leader of Rossendale Council Alyson Barnes (@alysonbarnes) has also been directing effects too. The next meeting of residents with the EA will take place in the 10th February from 3-7pm.
