Local Flood Risk Management Strategy

The Local Flood Risk Management Strategy sets out our plan for the management of local flood risk across the borough until 2020.

About the strategy

The Flood and Water Management Act requires the council to develop, maintain, apply and monitor a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (LFRMS).

The LFRMS, which was adopted by Cabinet in September 2015, identifies objectives to manage local flood risk to local communities. It considers all sources of local flood risk such as surface water, groundwater, and ordinary watercourses.

The Strategy has been produced in partnership with other flood risk management authorities, such as the Environment Agency and Thames Water. The Strategy is informed and influenced by the comments received by local residents and business following the community engagement exercise undertaken earlier this year.
