Find out how Government and the Environment Agency have responded to the flooding.
The summer 2007 floods showed how susceptible communities in England and Wales are to flooding, now and increasingly so in the future. Following the floods we carried out a review to find out what happened and how the response to flooding can be improved for the future.
We carry out a review after every major flood to identify what lessons we can learn and the good practice we can share. We can then continue to improve how we manage flood risk and limit the consequences for people, the economy and the environment in a changing climate. We completed our review of the summer 2007 floods in December 2007.
