""This alert is specifically for the upper reaches of the catchment at Alverstone to Langbridge."Not sure, but the proposed developement at Arreton would make this even worse. When flooding occurs now, which houses have to take care and if Arreton goes ahead, how many more will come into the catchment and see houses flooded? More neglect by the Council?
