West Sussex Local Flood Risk Management Strategy

The West Sussex Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (the County Council’s main policy on local flood risk from surface and ground water and a statutory document) is being reviewed and updated and will set out the County Council’s strategic approach for the next 5 years (2021 to 2026).

 

Adoption of a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (LFRMS) is a requirement under the Flood & Water Management Act 2010 and associated Flood Risk Management Regulations 2009.

 

This is the second iteration of the LFRMS and sets out how the County Council will undertake its flood risk management responsibilities to meet the statutory requirements.

 

Public consultation on the draft strategy will run for six weeks from mid-August to the end of September 2021. 

 

The Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport will be asked to approve the West Sussex Local Flood Risk Management Strategy.
