UK Weather Warnings - BE PREPARED!

There are currently weather warnings in place for Leicestershire with more heavy rain forecast that could cause localised flooding. We're encouraging our communities to be prepared and alert to this possibility, and not to wait until more rain arrives to prepare for flooding.

NWLDC webpage contains useful information for residents about preparing for flooding, where to purchase flood defence resources such as sandbags from, and links to specialist flooding websites such as the Environment Agency.

NWLDC has some sandbags available for collection only at the Coalville recycling depot, should flooding arrive. However, residents should be encouraged to prepare themselves and not rely on collecting this emergency stock of sandbags at the last minute.

Details of how to contact NWLDC should these sandbags be needed are:

Please call 01530 454545 or Out of hours 01530 454789 to arrange collection.

Collection: Linden Way depot off Ashby Road in Coalville (postcode LE67 3JY) - between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays and weekends). (Please note that staff will not be able to load sandbags into vehicles when collected due to Covid-19 restrictions.)

Please pass this on to your neighbours and those who may need it.
