Flood Advisory Service in Cockermouth

The Flood Advisory Service visited Cockermouth last week.

The roadshow trailer was at The Lakes Home Centre, on Low Road, from Tuesday 9th February until Thursday 11th Feb. 

The town was severley flooded in November 2009, when the River Cocker rose 2.5m following 314mm of rainfall in one 24hour period, causing an estimated £276.5m of damage in the town.

Since then, Cockermouth has had the benefit of a flood alleviation scheme which reduced some of the impact for the December 2015 flooding. However, Cumbria police estimate between 400 and 700 homes and businesses in Cockermouth were unfortunately flooded following Storm Desmond.

We welcomed local residents on board to discuss their local flood risk, and offered them independent advice on the Kitemark certified solutions available to them.
