Unfortunately Headcorn Parish does have a history of flooding in places.
Unprecedented levels of housing development might impact upon risk, although developers claim to have mitigated against additional risk. Enforcement of such mitigation is key.
Why not join the Headcorn Flood Action Group?
The Environment Agency has made some changes to its Flood Warning service.
