Sign up to the Environment Agency’s Flood Warning Service

We want to encourage you to sign up to the Environment Agency’s Flood Warning Service so we can let you know the latest information in your area that could affect your property. Call 0345 988 1188 to do this, or do it online www.gov.uk/flood.

In addition to a period of prolonged wet weather over October, Lincolnshire has received the entire November average rainfall in just 2 weeks. This has resulted in heavily saturated catchments, elevated river levels and in some places elevated ground water levels. In a number of cases, record river levels have been documented.  We are expecting more rain of over the winter period so the risk of flooding remains high.

We will continue to operate the flood storage reservoirs around Lincolnshire where necessary and are discharging main rivers out to sea to bring down river levels. Our flood storage reservoirs have already protected over 8000 properties from flooding.

We are working with our partners, such as the Internal Drainage Boards and NFU, to manage the impact to agricultural land and livestock farms. Our teams are also on the ground assessing urgent repairs to damaged or over-topping defences across the county as well as understanding the longer term options for recovery from the flooding.

Check your flood risk, stay up to date with the latest flood alerts and warnings and sign up to receive free flood warnings by calling 0345 988 1188 or visiting www.gov.uk/flood. Stay tuned to local news for updates and follow us on Twitter: @EnvAgencyMids

We ask that people avoid walking along flood banks, using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. Don’t drive through flood water, just 30cm is enough to move your car and risk your safety.

Flood water can contain sewage and other harmful substances. Where possible avoid contact with, and keep pets away from, flood water. Always wear waterproof clothing, gloves, wellington boots and a face mask if contact is unavoidable.

The purpose of the review is to seek to ensure that

  • · So far as is reasonable and practicable every polling place for which it is responsible is accessible to all electors, particularly those with a disability.

Information about the current polling districts and polling places, comments from the Returning Officer and any proposed changes will be available to view on the council’s website at www.northlincs.gov.uk and from the council‘s electoral services (upon request) at the address below.

Electors within the area as part of this review are invited to make representations by 6 October 2019 relating to the boundaries of polling districts, the location and suitability of polling places and polling stations within them.

The council would welcome the views of all residents, particularly residents with a disability and any person or organisation with expertise in access of persons with any type of disability.

Persons or bodies making representations should, if possible/applicable, give alternative places that may be used as polling places.

Representations in connection with the review should be submitted to Electoral Services by email to elections@northlincs.gov.uk or by post to Electoral Services, Church Square House, 3040 High Street, Scunthorpe, DN15 6NL.
