Amber Flood Warning for Bollington 19th-20th January 2021

The Met Office has issued an Amber Flood Warning for our area due to heavy rainfall and some snowmelt across the hills. The risk is from surface water and rising watercourse levels.

Cheshire East Council has an adverse weather desk in place to coordinate the emergency response across the Borough
Please report weather related emergency issues by calling 0300 123 5025!

Please consider the risk and put in place any flood resilience measures you may need for your home or business and consider neighbours and other community members who may require assistance

If you are able please

  • Check that the surface of grids and drainage channels on the roads outside your property are free of leaves and other debris that may be blocking them: clear the surface using a brush or it can be kicked away – this is a relatively quick and simple thing that you can do to help avert flood risk. N.B. If you are concerned about blocked gullies these should be reported to Cheshire East Highways
  • Check that if parked on a road  your tyres are not blocking grids.
  • Ensure any neighbours/community members that do not access social media are informed about the above.

There is a supply of sand and sandbags at the front of the Bollington Town Hall
