Local Flood Risk Management Strategy Consultation

Bristol is one of the top 10 cities in the country at risk from flooding. From the tidal River Avon to flooding from heavy rainfall, it is a threat to many people and places in and around the city. As we have seen from recent events around the country, flooding can have a significant impact on our lives. Therefore, it is important that BCC works together with other agencies to manage these risks appropriately.

As the designated Lead Local Flood Authority for Bristol, an important duty for Bristol City Council is to produce and maintain a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy. The Strategy sets out BCC’s vision and action plan for managing flood risks in our city, and how they will seek to work with the community and partner authorities, such as the Environment Agency and Wessex Water.

The closing date for comments on the consultation is 10 June 2014.
