Met Office Yellow Warning to Continue

We would like to alert all of our customers that the Met Office has issued warnings of “potential danger to life” in some areas, due to the high winds and stormy weather.

There is currently a yellow warning for wind and rain, covering most of England and Wales, as well as a small section of the Scottish Borders area. There is currently no warning in place for Northern Ireland.

The current yellow warning is set to persist for England and Wales, and should continue through most of the weekend.

Specifically, there is a yellow warning for most of England and Wales showing on the 21st, 23rd and 24th of September; there are currently no warnings for any area on the 22nd.

Currently, neither Scotland nor Northern Ireland show a warning on any of these dates.

Our teams have been put on alert, and will be monitoring the situation in Greenbelt developments all across the UK.

Greenbelt’s Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) help to lower the likelihood of flooding in these instances, absorbing excess water and directing it away from homes and businesses.

We also undertake a rolling programme of Woodland Audits, inspecting every woodland area we manage for structural soundness and general health. By addressing signs of stress or weakness at the first opportunity, we always look to minimise damage in times of extreme weather.

In the first instance, emergency services will always deal with potentially dangerous situations for the public.

However, where it is safe to do so, we do carry out remedial words as quickly as possible.

If you have urgent concerns, please do contact us by telephone on 0800 028 1749 and follow the simple instructions for making an emergency call.

If you have a non-urgent query or concern, remember that you can reach our dedicated customer care team as normal on 0800 028 1749, or by e-mailing customercare@greenbelt.co.uk.
