Flood risk management consultation

Published on 25 October 2021 Print

The Local Strategy for Flood Risk Management Plan (FRMP) provides an overview and assessment of local flood risk in the Black Country, setting out objectives and measures for how the Lead Local Flood Authorities will manage and reduce local flood risk. It is the document that sets out how flood risk associated with surface water, groundwater and ordinary watercourses in an area will be managed by the relevant councils and their partners.

This is a consultation about the draft FRMPs, strategic plans that have actions to address surface water and river flooding. The plans have been drafted by the Environment Agency, which has worked with Lead Local Flood Authorities and other Risk Management Authorities to produce them.

A three month public consultation on draft Flood Risk Managament Plans is taking place from 22 October 2021 to 21 January 2022. We invite you to submit your views on the draft FRMPs on the Environment Agency’s online consultation hub before 21 January 2022.
