Community flood action programme

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.
