We are fully aware of rising groundwater issues at Kimpton and the history of floods in the village, and wish to reassure residents that our teams are closely monitoring local groundwater levels. Currently we are working with Kimpton Parish Council and other relevant agencies including the Environment Agency and Herts County Council, to share information, ensure a coordinated and timely response to any further developments and forge a way forward should groundwater levels continue to rise, and any flood risk occur.

We will provide further information in due course.
