Devon County Councillor Stuart Hughes, who is the chairman of the Devon Flood Risk Management Partnership, said: “The recent flooding has impacted on many Devon communities and we want to reassure everyone affected that we will listen to their concerns.
“We need to hear their thoughts on what happened and the response to see what lessons can be learnt.
“This is a chance for residents not only from Sidmouth but also from Budleigh Salterton, Harpford and other surrounding communities to talk to officers from all of the relevant bodies and have their say.
“Their information will also help us to build a picture of events and what could possibly be done to be better prepared in future.”
