The board

Our people & members

Drainage boards are locally based, providing a service to their community with locally elected members in control.

The membership comprises of twenty nine people, fourteen of whom are directly elected by landowners, or their nominees, within the Board's area paying drainage rates to the Board. The remaining members are councillors appointed by the eight local authorities which jointly make up the land included within the Lower Severn area.
