Lancashire and Blackpool Local Flood Risk Management Strategy

New Search

Purpose The Flood and Water Management Act 2010 designated Lancashire County Council and Blackpool Council as Lead Local Flood Authorities. The Act places a range of new powers, duties and responsibilities on Lead Local Flood Authorities and makes them responsible for managing flood risk from 'local' sources. These local sources of flooding are pluvial (surface water), groundwater and ordinary water courses.

One of the new responsibilities to come out of the Act requires all Lead Local Flood Authorities to produce a local flood risk management strategy. Lancashire County Council and Blackpool Council have produced a draft joint Local Flood Risk Management Strategy and this is your opportunity to give us your views.
