Lancashire and Blackpool flood risk management strategy

Following the introduction of the Flood and Water Management Act Lancashire County Council has been designated as a Lead Local Flood Authority.  The county council is now responsible for managing flood risk from all local sources; surface water, ground water and ordinary watercourse.  As part of its role as a Lead Local Flood Authority, Lancashire County Council is required to produce a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy which explains how we will manage local flood risk in our area.  Lancashire County Council has worked in partnership with Blackpool Council to develop a joint Lancashire and Blackpool Local Flood Risk Management Strategy.

Following a consultation with both our partner organisations and members of the public the final copy of the Lancashire and Blackpool Flood Risk Management Strategy (PDF 3.71 MB) has now been adopted. 

If you would like further information on the strategy please contact the Lancashire County Council Flood Risk Management Team at FRM@lancashire.gov.uk.
