Tell us: is your home built in a high flood risk area?

If your home is built in a high flood risk area we’d like to hear from you

If you live in a home that’s been built on high flood risk area, we’d like to hear about your experience. We’re particularly interested in houses that have been build recently.

One in 10 new homes in England since 2013 have been built on land that’s at highest risk of flooding. Of the 70,000 new homes built in these at-risk areas 20,000 are not protected by flood defences.

A study has found that families who’ve bought new homes in these flood-risk areas could be facing huge financial costs, as they are ineligible for cover under a government-backed insurance scheme. Labour has now called for an end to building houses on land at high risk of flooding.

Lincolnshire had the greatest concentration of undefended at-risk homes however wherever you are in the UK we want to hear from you.

We’d like you to help us build a picture of how people and communities are being affected. We want to hear about the impact of localised flooding near you. What financial costs are you facing. Have you had any issues insuring your home? What are the hidden impacts?
