Flooding issues around Plymouth addressed by 'quick-win' schemes
SCHEMES to address flooding issues in Modbury, Yealmpton and Ivybridge have been announced.
Around £60,000 is being invested by Devon County Council in a number of 'quick win' schemes to address flooding issues.
Projects which will receive funding include £20,000 to provide debris grills in Yealmpton, Ivybridge and Modbury – where more than 30 properties were flooded in July.
Yealmpton will also receive sealed bolt-down manhole covers for a culvert in Ford Road. The measures are a direct result of feedback from flood surgeries and drop-in events. They are also based on the findings of the Flood Investigation Report into the summer floods, produced by Devon County Council in partnership with the Environment Agency, district councils and South West Water.

Councillor Stuart Hughes, Chair of the Devon Flood Risk Management Partnership and Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation, said: "Communities have played a big part in highlighting the actions we're now putting into place, by providing important information at the flood surgeries and drop-in events."
A catchment study is also being carried out in Modbury to investigate the capacity of culverts in the town.
