How to prepare

It is the responsibility of property owners to take action to protect their property from flooding.  There are no defences that can guarantee protection from flooding events. However you can prepare in advance to reduce the risks.

Please note there is no requirement for the council to provide sandbags to properties. We only have a limited supply and our first priority will be to support and assist the vulnerable in our community and safeguard essential community buildings as appropriate.

Sandbags can be purchased from DIY or building supplies shops.

Visit our advice page or Surrey County Council's advice page or the National Flood Forum or Gov.uk for more infomation.
