  • Flood alleviation for Keswick Close and Ogmore Close
    to date In response to the residents concerns Alok raised the issue with Thames Water and subsequently organised a number of meetings for residents with Thames Water to discuss solutions and agree a way forward Following these meetings and modelling work undertaken by Thames Water it was ascertained that 20 properties in Keswick Close and Ogmore Close are at risk of flooding Thames Water commenced flow monitoring of the relevant sewers to verify maximum flows during storm events This data will ensure the scheme implemented is appropriate to the flood risk Thames Water undertook a commitment to provide residents with fortnightly updates on the flow monitoring Conclusion Thames Water began work on a 730 000 scheme in October 2014 and the project was completed in time for Christmas Alok Sharma said I am delighted that after years of anticipation this scheme is now completed I want to thank Thames Water and all the brilliant local residents who worked patiently with me to make this project a reality and it is an object lesson in how local communities can work together to achieve a win which benefits everyone in the area Alok Sharma MP Reading West The Reading West constituency embraces

  • Sharma organises meeting to update Kingsley Close residents on flood alleviation action | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    residents on flood alleviation action Alok Sharma the Member of Parliament for Reading West last week held a meeting for residents of properties in Kingsley Close in Whitley to provide them with an update on work that has been done to prevent future flooding The completion of works marks success for residents following a campaign spearheaded by Alok to improve the ability of a drainage ditch to cope with excess surface water Representatives from Reading Borough Council Thames Water and the Environment Agency were present at the meeting to provide information to residents on work which began in February to improve surface water drainage Residents heard from Reading Borough Council that work had been done to clear the drainage ditch alongside the A33 on the former Courage Brewery site and were shown before and after photographs to demonstrate the improved situation Residents cautiously welcomed the improvements but were keen to ensure that the ditch was not allowed to revert back to its previous state Having experienced severe flooding in both July 2007 and August 2011 Kingsley Close residents contacted Alok in August 2011 to express their concerns that not enough was being done to prevent further instances of flooding in the future Alok then took up their case vigorously with the Council Thames Water and the Environment Agency It is now hoped that the re profiling works undertaken at the ditch will be enough to stop it overflowing in the event of heavy rainfall and causing further flooding Alok said To reassure residents Reading Borough Council has confirmed that it will undertake a regular maintenance programme to ensure that the ditch does not get blocked up again I understand that surveyors from Peter Brett Associates have also been commissioned by the Council to look to see if additional work can

  • Sharma welcomes first phase of flood alleviation works in Whitley and presses for second phase of works | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    Links Sharma welcomes first phase of flood alleviation works in Whitley and presses for second phase of works On Monday 27th February the first phase of work began to reduce the risk of future flooding for properties in Kingsley Close in Whitley The work on a key drainage ditch next to the A33 was agreed and commissioned following several months of meetings between MP for Reading West Alok Sharma the Kingsley Close residents and Reading Borough Council The residents have welcomed the works but are keen that Alok continues to press the Council for a second phase of work on the ditch The first phase of work which is expected to last for ten days will involve reprofiling the ditch to adjust its gradient and remove silt so that the ditch is returned to its original specified dimensions This should improve water flow and allow surface water to drain away more quickly during periods of heavy rain and Reading Borough Council has indicated that it should therefore substantially reduce the risk of flooding in Kingsley Close Whilst residents are pleased that the Council has finally taken action to try to resolve this issue they remain concerned that the work currently being undertaken may not be sufficient Alok is therefore pressing the Council with respect to a second phase of work to widen the drainage ditch beyond its original specified dimensions in order to increase further its water carrying capacity and decrease the risk of flooding in Kingsley Close Alok said I am pleased that the Council has listened to local residents and agreed to take action I very much hope the clearing of the ditch produces the results expected I would like to thank those in Kingsley Close who have been involved for their persistence and positive manner during this

  • Sharma and Bale highlight local disappointment with intended closure of NatWest branch in Pangbourne | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    with local customers with respect to the intended closure of NatWest s Pangbourne branch on 23rd November 2011 Alok and Pamela held a meeting in Pangbourne on Friday 14th October to discuss the planned branch closure and along with representatives of NatWest and RBS the meeting was attended by local residents and business representatives who expressed concerns about the short notice given of the intended branch closure the manner in which information regarding the closure had been communicated and the apparent lack of a rational explanation of the decision to close the NatWest branch in Pangbourne At the meeting in October local people explained that the closure of the busy Pangbourne branch would have an impact on the vulnerable members of the community who currently bank with NatWest and who are most unlikely to be users of internet banking In addition attendees at the meeting raised the issue of the potential impact of the closure on the future prosperity of Pangbourne explaining that a reduction in services will affect the sustainability of the village and its ability to support neighbouring areas Unfortunately at the October meeting the NatWest and RBS representatives were unable to give any detailed rationale for the closure of the Pangbourne branch Alok said Following October s meeting I have been in contact with a number of senior executives at NatWest and RBS including the RBS Group Chief Executive Steven Hester Brian Hartzer RBS Group CEO responsible for Retail Banking Joseph Donkor RBS Regional Director for the South West Jennie Bartlett Local Chief Executive of NatWest and Rebecca Wright Regional Public Affairs Manager at RBS Unfortunately no one from NatWest or RBS has been able to answer the question as to whether the Pangbourne branch is profitable or not Due to lack of any response on this issue I can only assume that the branch is profitable and there is some other reason for closing it down Alok continued Brian Hartzer wrote to me on 25th October stating I want to stress that we keep our branch network under constant review to ensure we are able to offer the best service we can to our customers Should the situation change in Pangbourne we will of course look at the banking services we provide in the area I have to say there has been absolutely no willingness by NatWest or RBS to engage in any meaningful dialogue to review the closure decision and NatWest s local customers and I have been incredibly disappointed at this lack of response There is clearly still an opportunity for Mr Hartzer and NatWest to make good on their words and engage on reviewing the closure decision and many of us locally would be happy to provide input to find a way of keeping the branch open Pamela Bale West Berkshire Councillor for Pangbourne said I am most concerned at the way NatWest has dealt with the closure of the branch in Pangbourne In addition to lack of information about the reasons for

    information regarding the closure had been communicated Pangbourne branch bank accounts being automatically transferred to alternative NatWest branches the apparent lack of a rational explanation of the decision to close the NatWest branch in Pangbourne Jenny Holliday a Pangbourne resident who has organised a petition against the intended closure said I was shocked and angry when I received the letter from NatWest as I have been a customer for 36 years There was no consultation and no reasons given I started a petition and have over 400 signatures to date I contacted the Reading Chronicle who printed an article and this has attracted national interest from the Daily Mail Royston Hine owner of award winning local butchers Greens of Pangbourne said Apart from the loss of a local banking facility for businesses we shopkeepers are concerned that if people have to go to Tilehurst or Reading to do their banking they may not come to Pangbourne to shop While local people are likely to remain loyal Pangbourne is a hub for many small surrounding villages and the loss of even a percentage of their trade would be detrimental to the viability of some village shops Paul Sampson Director of Green Parlour said We depend on the Pangbourne branch for banking of daily takings and change facilities The closure will disrupt our business Pamela Bale West Berkshire Councillor for Pangbourne and Liz White Chairman of Pangbourne Parish Council said We are concerned about the impact on the vulnerable members of the community who currently bank with NatWest and who are most unlikely to be users of internet banking as well as the potential impact on the future prosperity of the village Tilehurst and Reading may not be many miles away but a visit using public transport takes time and effort a
