In March 2021 funding was approved by Full Council for a programme of works across Cambridgeshire aimed at increasing community resilience to flooding. This programme has been named the Community Flood Action programme and with this we aim to:
- increase the county’s resilience and ability to adapt to flooding through improving access to flood risk management information
- improve flood risk data quality
- provide guidance on asset management and
- support local groups in establishing community flood plans.
A key aim of this initiative by Cambridgeshire County Council is to increase the resilience of communities to flooding by encouraging communities to form community flood groups.
