Sustainable Norfolk


A perfect storm of cuts to the Environment Agency and local councils and the impact of climate change and flash flooding has contributed to more frequent flooding events.

We will

  • Ensure that there is clear information available so that residents know who is responsible for which aspects of flood prevention and response
  • End the policy of managed decline and reinstate a regular programme of drain and gulley clearance and maintenance and challenge the water companies & Highways England to filter the ‘run off’ from roads via storm drains in to our river systems
  • Increase Parish Partnership fund so that in the short-term, while long-term solutions are implemented, residents are better prepared with swift access to sand-bags and other physical barriers
  • Ensure that there is proper traffic management in place in flood risk situations, so that vehicles are stopped from driving through flood water and pushing water into people’s homes
  • Work constructively with the Environment Agency, Anglia Water, district & parish councils and landowners and use our enforcement powers where dialogue is not resolving the problem
