The 2020 flood warning and information services roadmap

Our flood warning and information services help people and businesses prepare for, respond to and recover from flooding.

We (the Flood Digital Services team) want to improve the services even further. We have a clear goal to meet our users’ needs by making them simpler and faster, as well as adding new features. We’re also making sure they're resilient enough to handle the growing number of users that visit our services when there’s significant flooding.

We achieved a lot in 2019, but we’ve got an even busier year ahead of us. This is our plan, often called a ‘roadmap’, of what features and improvements we’ll be working on and when we hope to have them ready for you to use. Sometimes outside factors and priorities change, so this roadmap might change too.

You can contact us for more information about these features, or to suggest another one that you would find useful. Email us at:
