Cambridgeshire County Council has produced a draft document which is a revision of the previous Cambridgeshire Flood Risk Management Strategy (2015-20). Created by Cambridgeshire County Council as Lead Local Flood Authority in consultation with its partner organisations, it outlines how flood risk will be managed across Cambridgeshire between 2021 and 2027.
The strategy sets out;
- Local and National context
- Roles and Responsibilities
- An overview of risk
- Funding opportunities
- Management activities and Actions prioritised to manage identified risks
The revised strategy has built in learning from recent flood events and industry developments since 2015. It looks to provide an overview of the wide range of flood related information, signposting areas you may wish to understand in more depth rather than duplicating other sources.
Cambridgeshire County Council would welcome feedback on the strategy and Hilton Parish Council has submitted a response to this survey. The documents and the survey can be found here: https://consultcambs.uk.engagementhq.com/cambridgeshire-flood-risk-management-strategy?s=03. The deadline for responses is 23rd January 2022.
