What is the Community Resilience Pathfinder?
The Community Resilience Pathfinder aims to facilitate community-led improvements in resilience and preparedness amongst communities who are at risk of surface water flooding in Northamptonshire, complementing other flood risk management activities. This is a two year project (2019 – 2021) for 30 communities and is funded by the Anglian Northern Regional Flood and Coastal Committee.
