Flooding and Grant to protect
Message from Cllr Peter Schwier, I have received several enquires about sand bags from Parish Councils /residents and wanted for you to have this information to hand, to assist.
Unfortunately Essex County Council do not provide sandbags. I would however encourage residents who have been flooded to apply for our grant to protect their homes from flooding: Get a grant to protect your home from flooding (essex.gov.uk)
If there are any drains in the vicinity which residents believe to be blocked, please do report this to us via the following link: Tell us - Essex County Council (essexhighways.org). If there is an emergency flooding situation, please call Essex Highways on 0345 603 7631.
