As a Merton Councillor (Liberal Democrats), she has seen first hand the consequences of flash flooding and this autumn, following floods in the city, has been putting forward questions to the Mayor about plans and finance for Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS).
Her forthcoming talk at Floodex is promoted by the exhibition organisers as being interesting particularly given how important local government support can be to getting solutions in on the ground.
Floodex, co-located with The National Drainage Show, is taking place next week, 9th–10th November at ExCel London. The event is free to register online here or attend on the day. A downloadable show guide is available here : www.floodex.co.uk/downloadable-show-guide
