The Norfolk Strategic Flooding Alliance (NSFA) was founded in February 2021. It was founded after significant surface water flooding issues in December 2020, led to:
Over 350 properties being flooded in Norfolk
120 settlements being affected
The NSFA brings together all agencies and partners involved in planning for and responding to flooding in Norfolk. It is chaired by Henry Cator.
A phone number, 0344 800 8013, has been set up by the NSFA to give Norfolk residents one point of contact to report flooding. Anyone can report flooding anywhere in the county. Report a flood.
The NSFA’s vision, objectives, approach and structure, is detailed in the NSFA strategy. The strategy is designed to enable countywide responses to flooding across all agencies involved.
The aim is to ensure that Norfolk residents have confidence that flood risks are as low as reasonably practicable and will be well managed. This is important as Norfolk has suffered from repeated flood events as well as being prone to drought.
