Flooding

Flooding is becoming a more common occurrence in our communities, and households should be prepared so that they can protect themselves in the event of a flooding emergency.

Northamptonshire County Council have a wealth of information available to householders in their Flood Toolkit.

East Hunsbury Parish Council will be participating in the Pathfinder III project, which aims to facilitate community-led improvements in resilience and preparedness amongst communities who are at risk of surface water flooding in Northamptonshire, complementing other flood risk management activities. This is a two year project (2019 – 2021) for 30 communities and is funded by the Anglian Northern Regional Flood and Coastal Committee. It will focus on urban settlements, as well as business town centres. The Project builds on Pathfinder 2 which worked with 30 communities over the past three years.

The Pathfinder III project has been delayed due to Covid.

Flood Investigation Reports

When incidents of flooding occur, Northamptonshire County Council are required to commission a report to identify the contributing factors to the incident, and any mitigation measures that can be made.
