Flood Risk Management Strategy for the City of Derby

Consultation Details


Flood Risk Management Strategy for the City of Derby

Start date: 16/12/2016
Closing date: 24/01/2017
Status: Closed
Why are we consulting?

Following the widespread flooding that took place in England in June and July 2007, the government commissioned Sir Michael Pitt to undertake an independent review of flood risk management arrangements in England and Wales.

The final report contained a detailed assessment of what happened during the 2007 floods and what we might have done differently to reduce the impact of such events.

The consultation provides the opportunity for residents and stakeholders to review the costed action contained within the strategy, so that future actions taken by the council, where ever possible, align with stakeholder priorities. You can have an input in to the Local Flood Risk Management Strategy which the council intends adopt at the earliest opportunity in 2017. We also are asking for feedback on the Strategic Environmental Assessment Scoping Report.
