Following last week's floods, Stratford-on-Avon District Council would like to thank everyone who came together to monitor and provide a response to a rapidly changing situation.
The effects of storm Henk on already saturated ground led to widespread surface water flooding across the district with some roads impassable.
The District Council is also advising all those affected by internal flooding to report this using a dedicated website link.
Throughout the incident, officers from the District Council maintained a watching brief working with Warwickshire Resilience Forum, a multi-agency partnership including emergency services, local authorities, the Environment Agency and utility providers.
Once the water receded, the Forum moved into the recovery phase and partners are now working through a programme of street cleaning, removal of debris and gully jetting.
Members of Warwickshire Resilience Forum are in the process of contacting households, commercial premises and landowners known to have been affected by flooding to ensure they are aware of the services and assistance available to them.
If your home has been affected by flooding during Storm Henk (2-5 January), it's important that you report it to Warwickshire County Council and to your insurance company.
Report this via Warwickshire County Council's Flood Risk Management online tool.
Reporting flooding to the County Council may help secure Government funding to help you recover from the effects of the flood, and will help local authorities plan future flood prevention measures. Warwickshire has not yet reached the required threshold of 50 properties confirmed as flooded, to be eligible for this Government funding, so it's crucial that you report flooding to help us secure this support for you.
