Couple want flood-proof home

A COUPLE from Wargrave want to rebuild their home due to fears of flooding.

Professor Anthony and Charlotte Narula have applied for permission to knock down the existing property in Loddon Drive, which is on a flood plain, and build a new three-bedroom house.

Loddon Drive is at risk of flooding from the River Loddon and the couple say much of the current building is below the predicted one in a 1,000-year flood risk and is prone to flood damage.

The new house and garage would be on stilts. The building would have a single storey with bedrooms on the west side and the living space on the east side.

Wokingham Borough Council will consider the application next month.
