Work begins on flood defence measures in south Derbyshire
WORK on flood defences for three towns in south Derbyshire will begin today.
The work, which includes raising roads and increasing the height of flood defences at Scropton, Egginton and Hatton along the River Dove.
The area has been plagued by flooding and it is hoped that the new 5km of improved defences will increase house prices and lower insurance premiums.
The work has been funded from various sources including £1.65 million from Nestlé UK which works in Hatton and will take around 12 months to complete.
