Under the Flood and Water Management Act (2010) we, as the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA), are required to develop, maintain, apply and monitor a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy.
The Local Flood Risk Management Strategy is a high level strategic document that identifies the sources of flood risk in the city and outlines the responsibilities of the Risk Management Authorities in Derby. The strategy identifies a range of local flood risk management objectives and an action plan by which these objectives can be met by the Council. The strategy then highlights how the success of the objectives can be measured, monitored and reviewed.
The Local Flood Risk Management Strategy is a living document that will form the basis of our flood risk management operations.
Our Strategy is now published and can be accessed on this page below:
Accompanying the report is the Local Flood Risk Management Strategy Strategic Environmental Assessment report, which can also be accessed on this page below:
The Strategic Environmental Assessment is required to identify potentially significant environmental effects created as a result of carrying out the action plan contained within the strategy.
Please contact the Projects, Water and Flood Risk Management Team with any questions about the Local Flood Risk Managment Strategy or the Strategic Environmental Assessment report.
