There are three types of flooding that can occur:

  • Tidal or Coastal flooding
  • River or Fluvial Flooding
  • Surface Water or Pluvial Flooding, usually after heavy rainfall.

You can mitigate the risk to flooding in many ways.


Firstly we recommend finding out if your property is at risk of flooding from the Environment Agency website. You can also sign up to receive flood warnings direct from the Environment Agency.
