23rd March 2015

Northamptonshire County Council has launched a free online toolkit to assist communities, individuals, land owners, businesses and flood risk management authorities with improving county-wide flood resilience.

The Flood Toolkit allows a user to:

  • Find out if they are at risk of flooding using the interactive Flood Risk Map.
  • Discover who is responsible for flooding outside their home or on the roads and how to contact them.
  • Learn how to protect their property from flood water through engaging images.
  • Locate funding sources for flood related projects using the Funding Mechanism Tool.
  • See how much rain has fallen in their local area through the Rain Gauge Widget.
  • Educate children through the Flood Aware Schools Pack.

The Flood Toolkit is part of the wider Defra Pathfinder Project on community flood resilience that Northamptonshire County Council has been piloting over the past two years. If you are interested in the results of this project, please follow the link to the electronic Pathfinder Evaluation Report.
