Caterham on the Hill and Old Coulsdon flood protection programme

Surrey County Council on behalf of the multi-agency project board has awarded the property flood resilience contract to Whitehouse Construction following a tendering process. Whitehouse Construction is an accredited contractor under the Environment Agency Property Flood Resilience Framework.

"Ask the contractor" sessions

These sessions have now been arranged with Whitehouse Construction. These sessions will give residents an opportunity to ask Whitehouse Construction about the Property Flood Resilience (PFR) process. There will also be the opportunity to view PFR products such as flood doors and air brick covers.

Three "Ask the contractor" sessions have been arranged next week, located in the car park of Caterham on the Hill library:

  • Tuesday 29 June
  • Wednesday 30 June
  • Thursday 1 July

We are running these sessions under site visit COVID-19 restrictions and we are limiting site numbers.

Please contact Whitehouse Construction to book a session as outlined in the letter.

Please do not turn up if you have not booked.

When attending one of these pre-booked sessions you will need to wear a mask and follow COVID-19 guidelines.

If you have not received a letter then please contact Alex Davis (Surrey County Council project manager) on flooding.enquiries@surreycc.gov.uk.

Background on the project

Following the flood event in June 2016, we have met with residents and begun working together to reducing flood risk, by raising priority issues directly with the responsible authorities.

The Caterham on the Hill and Old Coulsdon flood reduction programme brings together the flood mitigation work being carried out by the authorities in the Caterham Hill and Old Coulsdon catchment.

Collaborative work is being carried out by Surrey County Council, London Borough of Croydon, Tandridge District Council, Thames Water Utilities Limited, the Environment Agency, Atkins Limited and the Caterham Hill and Old Coulsdon Flood Action Group..
