Flood defence for Purley on Thames
The Purley Flood Defence Group was founded out of the Winter 2013/2014 flooding events with the aim of representing the village of Purley on Thames in working towards a comprehensive set of flood defence measures that will achieve flood protection for as many properties as possible in the lower, vulnerable area of Purley Village.
A reminder from history: the floods of 1947. This flood was much bigger than any flood event in recent years, but such a flood can, and almost certainly will, come again. When this happens, Purley needs to be prepared.
