I'm new to the forum and looking at moving to the Hackbridge area. Me and my partner are currently looking at moving close to the Wandle Road, Park Road area part of Hackbridge and have just had some interesting feedback from an environmental search.
It stated that we are at risk of surface water flooding and is graded as Black 1?!
I just wondered if there is anyone living in the area who knows if this is as big an issue as it sounds. I grew up in Wallington as a kid, and to my memory have no recollection of serious flood problems. I would also like to know if anyone has had any trouble getting, or has to pay a a lot for home insurance because of this.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated, as it could affect where in Hackbridge or Wallington we move to.
