Weather alert!

January 18th, 2021

Weather alert – please prepare your communities for potential flooding from Tuesday

As you may have seen from this week’s weather forecasts, heavy rain is expected from Tuesday to Thursday that could impact with localised flooding in our communities.

Wednesday is the day we could receive the most significant rainfall with a yellow warning for rain, building on the higher volumes we have received in the last 10 days.

In conjunction with the Local Resilience Forum and Nottinghamshire County Council, we are now preparing for flooding incidents.

Please encourage local residents to deploy any local property resilience measures such as flood gates, air brick covers or check sandbag provisions to help reduce the possible impact. Please also check any local water course infrastructure that you may have responsibility for, to ensure it is free flowing.

As ever here at the Borough Council we will be ready to respond with support. We are available on 0115 981 9911 or on our out of hours number 0115 981 1143.

Our partners Streetwise will have teams on standby and will distribute sandbags with priority to households at imminent risk of internal flooding where requested but we ask for patience, as depending on the volume of rainfall, demand may be significant across the Borough.
