The Parish Coucil maintians a record of hostoric flooding in teh parish. This record comprises a map and photographic record of areas prone to flooding. This information complements with actual data the DEFRA Flooding map which is largely theoretical based on land and watercourse levels. This information is particularly useful when considering planning applications which are in the proximity of areas prone to flooding.
Residents are encouraged to submit photographs for inclusion, especially for areas and dates that have not yet been adequately recorded.
The OCC website also has more information and advice for homeowners, businesses, landowners and the community on flood prevention and recovery, and what to do in an emergency. This document provides a lot of useful advice to homeowners and communities.
