Community action

Below are flood plans that some communities have adopted.

Community Emergency Plans (CEP)

Gloucestershire local authorities and Gloucestershire Rural Community Council have been encouraging local communities, for example, parishes / wards, to develop their own CEP. The CEP are for all emergencies that may affect the local community, including flooding.

The aim is not to replace existing emergency response arrangements but to increase the resilience of communities. This would be by building on ‘good neighbour’ support and enabling more effective communication links.

If your community has a CEP there may be support available if you are flooded. If you are not at risk of flooding you could volunteer to assist in an emergency. Contact your local Parish Council to see if your community has an CEP.
