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.
