A council has defended its record on flood alleviation efforts following questions that areas remain at risk.
Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead councillor Ewan Larcombe raised concerns about the status of the River Thames Scheme (RTS), which aims to prevent flooding in the home counties.
Councillor Larcombe said: “I am concerned because the RTS project is now reduced in size due to the removal of Channel One but the expenditure and the timescales are steadily increasing.
“In my opinion – after many years and previous assurances that have not been kept, combined with lethargic development – this project not only lacks coherence but also exhibits similarities with HS2.”
