Find out if you're at risk of flooding in England

Southend-on-Sea

THE PROBLEM

During the winter of 2013/14, Southend-on-Sea suffered from extensive surface water flooding. 

THE SOLUTION

Property level protection measures were installed to 150 homes. 

AECOM and the council's emergency planning team identified properties in the area that were able to apply for the Repair and Renew grant, which gave up to £5,000 to homeowners and businesses who experienced flooding in 2013/14. 

our specialist technical staff surveyed the eligible homes, identifying which PLP measures would be suitable for each property. Measures included flood proof doors, flood defender barriers, anti-flood airbricks and waterproofing of walls.
