Southwell Flood Forum

Southwell Flood Forum

Southwell Flood Forum is a community action group affiliated to the National Flood Forum. It was formed following the severe rainstorm which caused flooding of many properties in July 2013, some of which had also been flooded in 2007. It offers support, help and information on a range of issues related to flooding.

Using the valuable skills and knowledge of the local community and working closely with local authorities and agencies, we aim to help reduce flood risk. We have formed partnerships with both Universities in Nottingham on projects for Natural Flood Management (NFM) and Community Resilience.

The Southwell Flood Alleviation Scheme (SFAS) comprises engineered projects and property flood resilience which are funded by central Government, local councils and community contributions. A 3 year project, Improving Flooding Resilience in Southwell, funded by INTERREG through the Flood Resilient Areas by Multilayer Safety (FRAMES) Programme which ended in March 2020 worked with the Trent Rivers Trust and National Flood Forum,to install further NFM and building community resilience.
