Flood Risk Management Strategy

In our role as the lead local flood authority (LLFA) we have a number of roles and responsibilities associated with flood risk which are outlined in the Flood and Water Management Act 2010.

The Icon for pdf Flood Risk Management Strategy [999.29KB] outlines our responsibilities as the LLFA and how we intend to deliver them. The strategy, and Icon for pdf summary [315.4KB], have been developed with council services to ensure it is achievable and that it considers the council's aspirations outlined in Vision 2030, the Core Strategy and local plan.

In addition to the our own responsibilities it identifies the roles and responsibilities of others responsible for managing flood risk including risk management authorities (RMA's) including the Environment Agency and Northumbrian Water.
