Flood warden scheme

Llangattock volunteers and Councillors are working to make our community safer in the event of flooding. Recent severe flood events, including Storm Dennis in February 2020, have demonstrated the need to be prepared for flooding and to be able to respond if the worst happens.

The Community Council have set up a working group to investigate the challenges faced by Llangattock residents during flooding, to identify the most vulnerable properties and provide information to owners so they can protect their homes.  Vulnerable people have already been given Powys County Council ‘flood packs’ with information about how to prepare and who to contact in an emergency.

Three members of Llangattock Community Council (LCC) have joined the Crickhowell and Villages Flood Warden Scheme, which was set up after Storm Dennis.  They have been joined by volunteers who will help to warn residents, provide information and move furniture out of harm’s way if necessary.  At other times, Flood Wardens will keep an eye out for potential hazards and contact the relevant authorities if drains or culverts become blocked by fallen trees or debris.

If anyone would like any more information about LCC’s Flood Working Group please email llangattockcc@gmail.com.
