The Parish Council works with various authorities and local agencies to share information that affects our parish, from roadworks to emergency planning in times of bad weather (snow and flood). The current Parish Emergency Plan is under review but includes local knowledge on flood/ water management. Our parish has designated flood wardens.
For information about planned road closures due to highways maintenance that may affect this Parish see the ‘Notices’ section on this website (on the homepage). You can find the most up to date information on scheme start and end dates and more information about all the various planned works on:
– Website – www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/resurfacing
– Facebook – Gloucestershire Roads
– Twitter – @GlosRoads
– Signs in the area
Flooding information can be found on the Environmental Agency (EA) website – https://flooding-warning-information.service.gov.uk/warnings. From here by putting in your postcode you can then find useful information on the Haw Bridge Gauge Board, the five-day flood risk forecast as well as advice on flooding.
Tewkesbury Borough Council has a limited supply of sand bags and you will need to fill and fetch them yourself.

There is also a wealth of useful information to help you find out if you are at risk and how to prepare, such as our essential flood guide.
