Flood Recovery information
In the event of major floods, Public Health England works with local agencies, including the NHS, Police, KCC, District Councils and the Environment Agency to provide expert advice on protecting the health of the local community, particularly from microbiological and chemical hazards.
Our local health protection centres, liaising with national colleagues who specialise in environmental hazards, infectious diseases and emergency planning, can provide a focal point for health protection advice to local responders and the public. The Environment Agency has a key role in warning people about the risk of flooding, and in reducing the likelihood of flooding from rivers and the sea.
The Environment Agency has made some changes to the Flood Warnings they issue for the River Stour.
These changes should make Flood Warning messages more relevant to local communities and easier to understand.
Residents are encouraged to register for the service via their website (www.gov.uk/sign-up-for-flood-warnings) or the Floodline (0345 988 11 88).
(If you are already registered to receive Flood Warnings you will automatically receive these new Flood Warnings.)
New Flood Warning information for our Parish:
