Local flood risk management strategy

Local flood risk management strategy

The Local Flood Risk Management Strategy has been prepared as part of the Borough Council’s new role as a Lead Local Flood Authority and is consistent with the Environment Agency’s National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy. It is a high level, statutory document which sets out the Council’s approach to reducing the impacts of local flooding across the borough. It also promotes greater partnership working arrangements between those organisations with a responsibility for managing local flood risk and provides a strategic framework within which the various ‘Risk Management Authorities’ must work.

This draft strategy has been published for public consultation.
