In preparation for the Flood Alleviation work starting, core samples have been taken in Kings Acre car park and in the Home Road car park in order to determine the underlying geology of the area. This will help to give a more detailed indication of the ground conditions and rock types under the surface and thus give an early indication of the kind of problems that could occur.
