Local flood risk management strategy
The local flood risk management strategy shows how we aim to:
- reduce the impact of flooding on individuals, communities, businesses and the environment
- raise awareness and engage people in responding to flood and coastal erosion risk
- provide an effective and continual response to flooding and coastal erosion
- prioritise investment in communities most at risk
The strategy collates existing policies, and any new actions or policies introduced due to the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 and Flood Risk Regulations 2009. It also includes proposed actions or policies to be introduced to further manage flood risk.
The Local Flood Risk Management Strategy was approved by the Minister for Natural Resources and Food in September 2013.
