Enfield flood plans out for consultation

Published Friday, 15 May 2015

Enfield Council has published a draft Local Flood Risk Management Strategy this week, and is asking for everyone to get involved and share their views on the document.

By law Enfield Council must apply a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy that:

• Specifies the roles of the different authorities that have responsibilities for managing flood risk in Enfield
• Describes how Enfield is working with partners to reduce flood risk
• Provides an overall assessment of local flood risk
• Sets out the objectives for managing local flood risk
• Outlines what actions are to be taken to meet those objectives

Cllr Daniel Anderson, Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment said: “Enfield Council is now a Lead Local Flood Authority with responsibilities relating to local flood risk from surface water runoff, groundwater and small rivers, streams and ditches.

“We have created a draft strategy which is looking at various ways we can work with partners to reduce and manage any flood risk in Enfield. It is now out to public consultation and we are keen to hear the views of local people and organisations.”
