Princes Street Flooding

Dear Sirs.

The widespread flooding that was experienced last week was also affecting Princes Street in Looe.

One of the neighbours had remarked that the water was the farthest they had ever seen it come, which was as far as their flood gate in Princes Street They have apparently lived here many years.

This encroachment up Princes Street will surely only get worse as time goes by, affecting the residences up this street as well as the surrounding businesses and other streets.

The Spar also had to close due to a power cut. I also experienced a power outage to Anchor House. Some of the neighbours were out on Princes Street wondering how far the flood waters would come.

Thankfully it had not reached the residences in Chandlers Court, but I feel it is only a matter of time.

Can you please take Princes Street and the Square into account when deciding on flood defences for the future.

Kind regards.

Sue Owen
