Select Committee on Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Minutes of Evidence


Annex 4


  The River Rother floodplain, showing raised-up made ground that has been placed upon it. The former course of the floodplain is shown within the made ground. Water in the present river channel, flowing northwards, is unable to occupy and be absorbed by its former floodplain, and this may have contributed to the flooding seen at Catcliffe.
