Weather warnings

When weather warnings or flood warnings are issued by the Met Office and the Environment Agency our Emergency Management Team get ready to respond. They liaise with agencies like the Police and Fire & Rescue services as well as the Environment Agency and other local councils

If people need to be evacuated we can open rest centres for hot drinks and showers etc.

If needed, we can arrange temporary accommodation for people. If you need temporary accommodation, please contact our Housing Options Service on 01274 435999. If emergency accommodation is required during out-of-office hours, please ring 01274 257600.

Housing Options staff and customer service advisors for Council enquiries can be found at Britannia House in Bradford. Housing Options are there to deal with people who require housing advice and/or emergency housing, and the customer service advisors can help with other flood related queries.

If your property is at risk of flooding, sign up for flood warnings and have a flood plan in place:

Please note that the flood resilience scheme has now closed - no further applications will be accepted.
