FLOODING INFORMATION

Emergency advice on Chorley Council's website www.chorley.gov.uk

​As a local authority we have an important role to support the emergency services in the case of a major emergency within the borough. These emergencies can be natural disasters such as flooding, storms and pollution also other events such as major traffic accidents, unexploded bombs or acts of terrorism. Our role and responsibilities are outlined in the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 where we are a category 1 responder.

Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service have updated their website with some useful advice on what you can do following a flood in your home to stop further damage and help you recover as quickly as possible:

Chorley Council are continuing to work with the police, fire service, environment agency and other local council to help those who have been affected by flooding and to continue to monitor the ongoing threat of further flooding.

Financial Support for households and businesses affected by flooding

A package of financial support will be available and we're asking people to provide their details if they have been affected by flooding anywhere in the borough. You can see full details of the help available at: www.chorley.gov.uk/Pages/AtoZ/Flood-Support.aspx.
