Update from Wycombe District Council
Wycombe District contractors, Serco, removed over 26 tonnes of sandbags on Saturday 5 April 2014.
They were unable to complete the task and will be returning on Saturday 12 April 2014 to continue with the removal of sandbags from known locations.
Wycombe District Council have asked for residents continued patience in clearing sandbags, as the task is proving far greater than anyone expected.
With the change in weather we have received increasing calls about this. Our contractor is working on this and we have hastened them but the sheer numbers involved and the fact that due to their added weight (now that they have become wet) they can only load 100 at a time onto their vehicle this is going to take some time. We continue to ask people to be patient with us and are fully aware of the concern amongst residents but they are going as fast as they can.
All paths should now be cleared.
Public toilets should now be operational after cleaning and disinfection.
Flood Repair and Renew Grant
A new grant was launched yesterday by us to assist those who have suffered flooding.
Residents can apply for up to £5,000 grant funding towards 100% of the costs (including VAT) of purchasing and installing appropriate resilience and/ or resistance measures for individual properties, such as waterproofing external walls, window and door guards and garage and driveway barriers. The grant can also be used to cover the cost of professional surveys.

Welcome to the official website of Marlow Town Council. We aim to provide information on the services and activities of the Town Council and of other organisations in Marlow. We hope that whether you are a resident of beautiful Marlow, work in the town, or planning to visit, you will find this website both useful and informative.
Welcome to Marlow!
There are very few English towns which can equal Marlow as a place to live, work or visit. This attractive town on the River Thames offers both tranquil riverside walks and a centre vibrant with individual shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. Situated on a beautiful stretch of the River Thames midway between Reading and Windsor, it is surrounded by the lovely countryside of the Chiltern Hills.
Marlow is a town rich in history, which is reflected in its architecture. It is a popular tourist destination, with its pretty High Street and attractive Georgian and Victorian buildings, and many organisations flourish in the town, which is close to London, the M40 and the M4 motorways and to the rest of the Thames Valley.
Marlow Town Council, with Wycombe District Council and Buckinghamshire County Council, works hard to keep the town vibrant and attractive - helped by generous local resident volunteers. There are many ways to help us, so if you think you'd like to be involved, do get in touch.
We hope you will find this website both useful and informative. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
