Flooding and Community Resilience
All residents know that Kingston Seymour largely lies beneath sea level and that significant floods have occurred in the past – most recently in 1981.
In 2016, the Environment Agency completed some significant flood defences and these now protect the parish from most likely flood events.
Nevertheless, it is important that all parishioners know what to do in the event of an Emergency and the Kingston Seymour Community Resilience Team has produced the following Resilience Notice.
In addition, it is recommended that households sign up for the Environment Agency’s Check for Flooding service. Link to the website section here Link to Check for Flooding guidance (opens in a new window)
In 2017, all households were issued with a Resilience Postcard urging discussion and preparation in case the worst does happen. This is the Resilience Postcard (opens in a new window) . Please complete this card for your household – discuss it with everyone – and keep it somewhere prominent.
The Environment Agency has also produced this poster as a quick reference Link to What to Do in case of Flooding (PDF opens in a new window)
