About The Flood Hub

Supporting our communities to manage flood and coastal risk across the North West

The Flood Hub has been designed to be a one stop shop for flood information and resources to support householders, businesses and communities across the North West in becoming more flood resilient. We have pulled together multiple sources of guidance to produce a hub of information that gives an overview of flood resilience and it’s many related topics. By signposting a variety of other useful sources, you will easily be able to find all the information you need either within our content or by visiting one of the linked websites.

Our ‘Knowledge Hub’ can be browsed to find a variety of downloadable resources that have been produced in collaboration with the flood team at Newground, or sourced from external sites.

The ‘Your Local Area’ page highlights the regional focus of the website by pooling information on flood risk management across the North West, with further information on community groups, flood schemes, natural flood management schemes and events in our easy to use interactive map.
