Local Flood Risk Management Strategy 2021-2027
Under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 Nottinghamshire County Council, as a Lead Local Flood Authority, must lead on managing local flood risks within its administrative boundary. Our duties as Lead Local Flood Authority require us to publish and review a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy including an Action Plan that identifies key objectives to shape the delivery of the flood risk management services in Nottinghamshire.
Since 2015 over 3000 homes and businesses across the County have suffered the physical and mental devastation caused by internal flooding and our Local Flood Risk Management Strategy sets out our aims and actions to reduce the future impact and likelihood of flooding across the County.
We have completed a review of our current strategy that was formally approved by the Authority in 2016 and welcome your comments on the revised version.
Our revised strategy builds on the knowledge and experience we have gained in our role as Lead Local Flood Authority since the adoption of our initial strategy. It has been designed and structured acknowledging the need for clarity to all who may use it, from Partners and Public, to Members and colleagues.
Our consultation closes on 9 November 2021 after which we will seek formal approval of the document before it is published.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to engage with our consultation and look forward to receiving your comments.
