Request sandbags for your home

Councils do not have to provide materials for flood protection but we do try to provide sandbags to homes that are at imminent risk of flooding. We cannot guarantee that you will receive sandbags before flooding occurs.

Sandbags can minimise flooding in some cases, but they will not protect your home completely. We do not provide sandbags for the protection of:

  • Commercial properties
  • Non-residential outbuildings
  • Garages
  • Sheds
  • Gardens

You are responsible for placing sandbags and for providing plastic sheeting or other measures for use with the bags. Sandbags are heavy and you should take care when lifting or moving them.

Call 01709 336003 to request sandbags
