The Environment Agency is delivering a proposed Flood Risk Management Scheme to better protect homes and business from flooding in the Kent catchment, and improve the local environment and community amenities. Kendal is the first area to be delivered, followed by Burneside, Staveley, and Ings, and upstream measures including flood storage. In addition, Natural Flood Management measures are being integrated into the plans which aim to slow the flow of water and provide wider environmental benefits across the catchment. Information on the Kendal pages has been provided by the Environment Agency and was correct at the time of upload. The Flood Hub is not responsible for any information held on the Kendal pages. For any enquiries, see the Contact section of the page.
