Sandbags

It is the responsibility of all homeowners and residents to protect their own property.

Residents who are aware that their home is at risk of flooding, for example as a result of the close proximity of a watercourse, are recommended to obtain their own sandbags to enable early preparation before floods happen.

It is not Northamptonshire County Council’s duty to provide sandbags: these should be purchased from a local DIY store or builders’ merchant. 

Additional support and equipment may be available from your local District or Borough Council or Parish Council, but this will depend on the area in which you live. Please locate your relevant District or Borough Council below for further information about the assistance they may be able to provide:
