Weather Damage Reports

Severe weather events have caused extensive damage and disruption to infrastructure and buildings with serious consequences for many.

Creating a record of damage to buildings and structures has the support of MHCLG (Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government) and other government agencies in the UK to help formulate long term strategies for the Building Regulations.

The CROSS system will be used for collecting and processing information on weather damage. Visit our What To Report page for more information or submit a report on weather damage.
