Question for Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, how many homes in Kirklees were damaged by flooding in each of the last 11 years.

Answered on

19 July 2021

The numbers in the table below are derived from the number of homes that fall within the Environment Agency’s Recorded Flood Outline which is reviewed following each major flood. This data set records homes affected by flooding, rather than damaged by flooding, and includes homes where the flooding was restricted to gardens as well as those that flooded internally. This is the best available information held by the Environment Agency.

Number of Properties affected by Other Sources of Flooding (can be assumed to be from Surface Water)

There may be additional homes that flooded during smaller flood events that the Environment Agency is not aware of, particularly where the flooding is due to surface water. The Local Authority may hold more information about these events.
