Flood Planning

Lacock village and the area covered by Lacock Parish Council has both the River Avon and tributaries including Byde Brook flowing through and is therefore at risk of flooding occurring to land and properties following heavy or prolonged rain.

Additionally there are a large number of ditches, which if not maintained can become blocked and cause localised flooding of areas of the village and properties within.

Finally

We need Community Volunteers to help should a severe flood warning be issued which may impact the parish. If you think you have the enthusiasm, skills and attitude to support the community during a flood, or would like further information, please email Lacockflood@gmail.com in the first instance.
