Flood Risk Management Strategy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Cornwall Council, as Lead Local Flood Authority, is required to develop, maintain, apply, monitor and publish a Local Strategy for flood risk management.

The first Cornwall Local Flood Risk Management Strategy was formally adopted by the Council on 5 November 2014 following a public consultation. The Strategy is now due for its 6-year review.

As many of the underlying factors affecting flood risk and coastal change are as applicable today as they were 6 years ago, we are looking to refresh the existing strategy (rather than start all over again).

We welcome comments on the draft strategy from organisations, individuals and communities. You may submit your comments using the response form below.
