Sandbags

We strongly advise you to take your own steps to protect your property as we cannot guarantee to meet all demands for sandbags. It is the responsibility of property owners to take any necessary action to protect their property.

We recommend that you check the  Met Office website for the latest forecasts and check  GOV.UK for the latest flood alerts and warnings, the below areas on the map highlight where sandbags are stored and accessible to the public.

Sandbag stores have been checked and are all open 24 hours a day, except for Landport. Please only take as many as you need. 


In the event of flooding we will issue sandbags to residents in the district under a priority scheme to help protect their properties. 

Elderly or vulnerable residents are asked to seek assistance from neighbours or friends to collect sandbags on their behalf.
