Councillors asked a number of questions of the Environment Agency at the Meeting and a summary of the questions and answers will be published in due course.

If any members of the public have any questions that they wish to raise with the Environment Agency please send these to christine.walton@great-aycliffe.gov.uk who will forward them on.
