Let us know your thoughts on our Veterans Village and learn more about our project.


As we all experienced in 2007, our area faces the continuing risk of flooding, and we take this threat seriously. To protect our community and our homes, we are investing heavily in an extensive flood prevention plan with a focus on Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) and surface water storage.

The project has been recognised as an exemplar project by Living with Water and its partners.


Key Components of Our Flood Alleviation Scheme:

We are implementing SUDS to manage surface water in an environmentally friendly way. This includes green roofs, permeable pavements, and natural water retention areas to reduce the risk of flooding.

Key elements of the design will collect and temporarily hold excess water during heavy rainfall, preventing it from overwhelming the surface drainage systems.

Resilient infrastructure enhancements, such as improved drainage systems, raised embankments, and reinforced flood defences, will be implemented to ensure long-term protection.

Enhanced Community Plan:

Creating More Greenspace: In our commitment to sustainability, we have removed the Skydome classroom and strategically relocated workshops, greenhouses, and service areas. As you can imagine wetland areas are not ideal for fruit trees. This significant change allows for more greenspace and efficient drainage, ensuring the survival and growth of the community orchard.

Remember, the publicly accessible space in the Veterans Village will be extended from 13 acres to 18 acres and be available for use by the whole community.
