North Kent Marshes Internal Drainage Board

NKM IDB logoInternal Drainage Boards (IDB's) are public bodies that manage water levels in some areas where it is considered there is a special need for drainage.

These areas are known as Internal Drainage Districts (IDD's).

IDB's undertake works to reduce flood risk to people and property, and manage water levels for agricultural and environmental needs.

The North Kent Marshes Internal Drainage Board was formed in 2016 and is administered by Medway Council. It covers areas in and around the Hoo Peninsula, including Allhallows, St Mary's Hoo, Cooling, Cliffe as well as areas within Gravesend including Shorne Marshes, Filborough Marshes and Westcourt Marshes.

The North Kent Marshes IDB is one of 110 IDB's in England whose districts cover 1.2 million hectares (9.7% of England's landmass). They play a key role in reducing flood risk to over 600,000 people and nearly 900,000 properties.
