We are the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) as defined by the Flood and Water Management Act, 2010. The new legislation is designed to improve the way we tackle the risk of flooding across England and Wales following the large summer floods of 2007.
Find out what is happening in your area in our Action Plan.
For information on what to do before, during and after flooding read the Environment Agency’s flood advice booklet.
If you have a river, stream, ditch or culvert running through or alongside your property you are likely to be responsible for its maintenance. We have produced an advice leaflet summarising rights and responsibilities when it comes to rivers, streams, ditches and surface water on your land – Living with Water.
