Have your say

Residents are asked to share their experiences of flooding to help Northumberland County Council develop plans to manage any future incidents.

The council is seeking the views of local people, businesses and organisations to help inform its Local Flood Risk Management Strategy.

People may wish to share information such as whether they have been flooded before, what happened during the incident and what caused the flooding.

The strategy is now in the early stages of development and will play an important role in formalising an integrated approach to local flood risk management in Northumberland.

It will develop local objectives and set out measures with short, medium and long-term actions.

The consultation will close on Sunday, August 31.
