Flooding Leaflet and Norfolk Flooding Hotline
The Norfolk Strategic Flood Alliance (which includes Norfolk ALC representing town and parish councils) has seen a multiplicity of organisations come together to agree a strategy to ensure Norfolk communities and infrastructure are safer and more resilient to the risks of inland and coastal flooding.
In the meanwhile the Alliance prepared a leaflet giving sound advice and Norfolk County Council paid the Royal Mail to deliver a copy to every household in Norfolk. You can download the complete document here: Flooding Leaflet
