Sandbags are provided free of charge to households and commercial properties if in the Council's view they are at significant risk of flooding.

Different operational response times will apply for the different levels of risk.  A judgement will be made on the number of sandbags that will be provided.

Except in exceptional circumstances, on delivery the sandbag(s) will become the responsibility of the householder or business and their subsequent collection and disposal will not be arranged by the Council.

Where necessary when making the delivery, Council staff will assist with placing sandbags.

For more information or if you require sandbags, contact customer services on 01264 368000 or 01794 527700.
