Winter Floods and Storms Debriefs

A lot of work has been done to find out why the 2013/14 flooding happened and what can be done to tackle it differently in the future. A comprehensive flooding debrief report has recently been completed, including results of surveys of residents, agencies and responders and that provides the background information to the floods and the actions taken as a result. 

The report also makes recommendations for investigations to improve response and recovery next time.

The Technical Flood Report and associated plans are also available online.
