Flooding Help

River Flooding

Its not usual for Akeley to be affected by river flooding. The nearest area of risk is the Ouse and its tributaries as it flows from Buckingham through Thornborough.

Lots of information on flooding advice can be found by one of the following:

Buckinghamshire County Council Flooding.

Buckinghamshire County Council Flow Chart and information on who to contact.

 Surface Water Flooding

Occasionally local flooding occurs on the A413 and other roads in the Parish due to blockages and collapses of culverts etc. The Parish council does monitor this and regularly escalates such issues to Buckinghamshire Country Council as necessary for highways maintenance.

If you notice any such incidents, please help yourself and your neighbours by contacting Highways-On-Call and reporting it on 0845 230 2882. It would also be useful if villagers could copy Ellen the Parish Clerk (Elliesayer@btinternet.com) on any emails so the Parish Council can monitor appropriate responses from the relevant council services that have the responsibility for this kind of maintenance. To send an email to Highways on Call with a copy to Ellen please click here.
