Flooding and your property

Assessing the risk of your property / business flooding

Your property / business could be at risk from flooding. The flooding could be from different sources:

  • watercourses (fluvial)
  • surface water (pluvial)
  • highway
  • sewers
  • groundwater
  • reservoirs
  • leaks or burst pipes

Visit our types of flooding page for more detailed explanations.

Check if your property is at risk from flooding on the GOV.UK - Long term flood risk assessment for locations in England website (opens in a new window).

If your property is as risk, you could create your own flood plan, for more information visit GOV.UK - Prepare for flooding website (opens in a new window).
