The Flood Team at Newground has delivered flood programmes for over 15 years, and following the December 2015 floods, they have delivered the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC) community flood resilience programme. The Newground Flood Team work alongside the Environment Agency and other Risk Management Authorities to support individual, businesses and communities at risk of flooding.
They support individuals, businesses and communities to plan ahead for flooding, develop flood action groups, produce flood plans and gain knowledge, so they can be better prepared and more resilient to the effects of flooding.
Direct engagement work within communities has allowed Newground to develop a vast array of resources that are held in the Knowledge Hub section of The Flood Hub. These resources are developed as a direct response to address any confusion and questions asked when carrying out engagement work.
