Provision of sandbags

In the event of widespread flooding there are insufficient resources available to despatch sandbags to individual properties that request them.

The City Council will use available resources to attend strategic infrastructure and to deliver bulk sandbag drops to approved and informed stakeholder groups such as Flood Action Groups at specified locations. The community group will take charge of the distribution in accordance with their local community flood action plan.

Further information on flood warnings and practical advice on what you can do to prepare for flooding, during flooding and after flooding is available on our flooding advice pages.
