Following a well attended public meeting on 20 January in the Village Hall, at which surface water management issues in the Parish were discussed as a result of the heavy rainfall we experienced on Christmas Day and Boxing Day,  the Parish Council has continued to liaise with Yorkshire Water, HDC and the NYCC Flood Risk Management Team and positive steps are now being taken towards the development of a Surface Water Management Plan (SWMP) for Sessay.  The camera survey of the sewer by Yorkshire Water is continuing and we will keep you informed as this work progresses.  For more information about SWMP's and advice on flood recovery and resilience, see links below :
