Yes we are all now very much aware the end of 2013 and the start of 2014 was the wettest since records began and down here in the South West we were affected more so than anywhere else in the country. We were front page news for all the wrong reasons but it did bring the threat of flooding to the front of everyone's minds too.
Luckily for Tiverton we were spared serious flooding this year but not the damage. No room for complacency then, just think back to the 23rd December 2012. The River Exe rose to it's highest ever level, the River Lowman joined in and Mountbatten Road was one of many roads in Tiverton which flooded damaging homes and businesses for many months. This prompted Tiverton Town Council to act and to incorporate flood resilience with our winter contingency plans and was further motivated when due to budget restraints the District Council announced it was withdrawing its sandbag service to residents.Read more: Community Flood Plan for Tiverton
Devon County Council is launching a consultation with mobile library users, as proposals are considered which would remove underused stopping places from mobile routes, and reduce the frequency of the service, cutting the cost of the service by half.
Approximately 5,100 people across Devon use the Council's fortnightly mobile library service in rural communities not served by a static library.
Eight mobile libraries currently make 522 stops around Devon, stopping for between 20 minutes to 3 hours, but visitor figures show that 69 stops are significantly underused, with just three or fewer people using these stops.Read more: Consultation begins on proposed changes to Devon’s mobile service
