The flooding of November 2019 had a big effect on local residents and businesses across Rotherham including Dinnington, Kilnhurst, Whiston, Parkgate and the town centre. 

  • 135 homes flooded with 49 households still out of their homes. 
  • Over 300 businesses were effected
  • Kilnhurst school will be closed till Easter. 

The local council has mapped out the flood defence works that are needed to protect these homes and businesses in the future, at a cost of £51 million. This request for funding is still with the government. Add your name to this petition to ask the government to commit £51 million of funding now, so flood defence works can start.
