The GOV.UK flood information service is live and fully supported. It helps individuals and businesses prepare for, respond to and recover from flooding.
We are working to refresh the flood information service. Here is our plan (often referred to as a roadmap) describing the things we are working on and when we hope to have them ready for you to use. This could change.
You can contact us for more detail about these features, or to suggest something else you’d like the flood information service to provide.
July to September 2018
We will carry out user research and develop and test new prototypes.
October 2018 to January 2019
- continue to test prototypes
- implement a new summary screen, user dashboard, location search and content refinements for GOV.UK pages
- enable you to tailor risk assessment by location – you’ll not only be able to see when your property is threatened, but also get warnings when you’re away from your home or business
February 2019 to April 2019
You will be able to report flooding online.
May 2019 to July 2019
You will be able to see online how much rain has fallen in your area.
There will also be better information about the local impacts of flooding.
August 2019 to October 2019
Online, you will see historic flood data and an increase in the number of river level forecasting locations.
November 2019 to January 2020
We will provide online information about community flood groups and you’ll be able to personalise your alert preferences. You will also see Met Office weather warnings as part of the flood information service. And there will be better social media integration with Facebook and Twitter.
February 2020 to April 2020
Our service refresh will be completed.
