Over the Christmas holidays after the dreadful storm and heavy rain, the river at the bottom of our garden rose by 2-3 meters and washed away a huge amount of ground. It is slowly encroaching and the fence poles are swinging in mid air. It’s really dangerous and with a drop of around 3-4 meters it’s not ideal to leave as is. According to the locals this is not a normal situation and the Maire doesn’t remember it ever being so bad.
The village church has a similar problem, and whilst I’ve asked the Maire he has advised that here would be no help available through the Mairie. I am anxious to try and stop the erosion as soon as possible but I’ve been told that I need to check out the legal situation. Could anyone point me in the right direction, or give me any advice if they’ve found themselves in a similar situation. Thanks in advance.
