Local Flood Risk Management Strategy consultation

What is a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy?  

A Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (LFRMS) is a requirement of the Flood and Water Management Act (2010).  It sets out information on local flood risks relating to surface water runoff, groundwater and ordinary watercourses and how the council plans to reduce the flood risk associated with these sources of flooding. 

The strategy needs to be kept up to date to reflect changes to legislation and to ensure consistencies with other national and regional plans.

The council's proposed updated Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (PDF) [4MB] sets out a collaborative approach with other responsible authorities to ensure that flood and water management within Hillingdon is captured in 1 strategy.
