The answer is that a meeting took place involving:
Councillors from WTC, CBC, ECC.
Officers from ECC, ECC Highways, Environment Agency, Anglia Water.
Residents and local businesses.
The agenda was to look at flooding, including events of 9 August, and to look at what further work is necessary (e.g. drain surveys) to determine how improvements can be made, and who might be responsible for the work.
Expect to see more people around the area in the near future.
I did attend the meeting and I hope that is a reasonably accurate summary of what was discussed.
