How we prepare for flooding

  • we receive information from the Met Office, the Environment Agency and the Flood Forecasting Centre
  • we get together with other agencies across Greater Manchester to make sure we are as prepared as possible
  • we put in place a flood plan

Home insurance

If you live in an area of flood risk make sure you have the correct home insurance cover in case your property floods. The cost of recovery after a flood is on average £20,000. The Flood Re website has been set up to help those households who live in a flood risk area to find affordable home insurance.
