TRYING to prevent further flooding across the area is not just down to North Somerset Council - its leader says.
At a meeting of the authority’s executive on Tuesday, Nigel Ashton and deputy leader Elfan Ap Rees outlined plans to unite with other organisations to lessen the problem in the future.
Cllr Ap Rees says a flood resource committee of residents has been set up in Congresbury and there are plans to set them up in villages like Hutton, Locking and Bleadon as well.
Cllr Ashton said it is also the responsibility of other official bodies to help.
