The Cockermouth Flood Action Group was set up in response to the 2005 floods and has been working with the agencies responsible for flood prevention in the local area to achieve reductions to the flood risk in the area. The group has been proactive since the devastating floods of November 19th 2009. The group includes residents that have and have not been flooded, representatives from the business and farming community and retired and non retired professionals. All members share the same vision and that is to ensure a speedy recovery not only of Cockermouth but also the wider community of the county and to establish if a similar future catastrophe can be prevented.
