Closed – Consultation on the approach to Flood Risk Management Plans (FRMPs) in England and Wales

Flood Risk Management Plans are a requirement of the Flood Risk Regulations which implement the European Floods Directive. They are produced by Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFAs) for rivers, reservoirs and the sea in Flood Risk Areas (Flood Risk Areas are areas where the risk of flooding from local flood risk sources is significant as defined in Preliminary Flood Risk Assessments (PFRAs) in accordance with a method and criteria determined by Government). The Environment Agency is currently consulting on the approach to delivering FRMPs.

The aim of the consultation is to:

  • ask LLFAs in Flood Risk Areas their views on alternative approaches to delivering flood risk management plans
  • give other LLFAs (not in Flood Risk Areas), risk management authorities and other interested stakeholders an opportunity to provide views on alternative approaches
  • ask LLFAs, risk management authorities and other stakeholders for their views on implementation of future cycles of the Flood Risk Regulations, including co-ordination with river basin management planning.

The consultation runs from 3rd August to 31st October 2012. For more information on the consultation and how to respond see the Environment Agency website.
