Flooding Help and Guidance

This page contains links to useful websites and information on flooding related issues.

The Flood Hub has been designed to be a one stop shop for flood information and resources to support householders, businesses and communities across the North West in becoming more flood resilient. It pulls together multiple sources of guidance to produce a hub of information that gives an overview of flood resilience and its many related topics.

The Flood Hub has been developed by Newground as part of the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Commitee community resilience programme. Newground can also provide support to individuals, businesses and communities on flood related issues.


CWaC are the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA), and are required to formally investigate flooding incidents if it has a significant local impact.
