Flooding - Be prepared

Flooding - Be prepared

MESSAGE FROM NORTH WEST LEICESTERSHIRE DISTRICT COUNCIL - FLOODING - BE PREPARED

There are currently weather warnings in place for Leicestershire with more heavy rain forecast that could cause localised flooding. We're encouraging our communities to be prepared and alert to this possibility, and not to wait until more rain arrives to prepare for flooding.

Our webpage contains useful information for residents about preparing for flooding, where to purchase flood defence resources such as sandbags from, and links to specialist flooding websites such as the Environment Agency.

As ever, we will have some sandbags available for collection only at our Coalville recycling depot, should flooding arrive. However, residents should be encouraged to prepare themselves and not rely on collecting this emergency stock of sandbags at the last minute.

Details of how to contact us should these sandbags be needed are available on the webpage above.
