Suffolk County Council maintains the ‘Report a flood in Suffolk’ webpage. If you are aware of any areas which may have suffered from flooding, use the SCC reporting tool and make the relevant risk management authorities aware.
A new government scheme known as “Flood Re” has helped to significantly reduce the burden of increased insurance costs on homeowners. You can find more information about ‘Flood Re’ and how flooding is managed in Suffolk by going to the Suffolk County Council webpage.
You can also find more information on flooding and drainage issues (such as ditches, highway drainage, and the responsibilities of private owners) on the Suffolk County Council webpage.

Suffolk County Council runs recycling centres at Stowmarket, Foxhall and Leiston.
