Subject: Winter Flooding Preparations

Dear Community Resilience Plan Holders,

As we approach winter, we just wanted to send across some information to help you prepare.

The Environment Agency have published a Groundwater Flooding Briefing note, including lots of graphs, which I have attached. The main point from this is that Groundwater levels are high, but flooding is not expected imminently. However, we may see some flooding at the start of 2020.

If your community is in a Flood Risk area:

There is lots of information on how to protect your home from flooding available from the Environment Agency and your local District Council, and it remains the home owners responsibility to look after their property.

Kind regards,

Emergency Planning Team
