Landowners, homeowners, developers and local government all have a part to play in helping to reduce the risks of flooding.
The Parish Council plays an important role in managing flood risk at the community level by preparing community flood plans, raising additional funding for local flood resilience and flood defence measures, and gathering information on flooding by reporting any flood incidents in their area.
