Saxon Pit Whittlesey
I had a constructive meeting with the Chief Executive of the Environment Agency, Sir James Bevan, to reinforce the community concerns regarding Saxon Pit and to request that sufficient resource and prioritisation is focussed on this issue within his organisation. Sir James was very clear that he recognises there is significant community concern and that his organisation is working to address this at pace. He also agreed with me that transparency is important, particularly given the recent incident of water being discharged from Saxon Pit into Kings Dyke, and in respect of the planning applications that have been submitted. I will continue to liaise with local councillors to ensure relevant bodies are held to account in respect of this site.
