  • You need to go to the website below and put in the postcode of the property you are interested in which will be in the centre of the map which pops up. You can then zoom in and check in more detail. I've looked at Tonbridge and there are some risk areas.

  • Although there was quite bad flooding back in 2000 there has not been any flooding issues in Tonbridge since. It is known that the main problem for the flooding was due to the Leigh barrier failing and the poorly maintained drainage. Since 2000 Tonbridge and Malling have uprated the barrier and carried out lots of work on the drainage systems. So much so that most of the hotspot areas have been downgraded on the goverments flood risk portals. Hope this helps.
