Consultation description

We’re asking for evidence that we can use in developing our policy on flood and coastal erosion. This will allow us to develop a policy direction that better prepares the country and manages the risks of flooding and coastal erosion. In particular, we’re seeking evidence on these key issues:

  • what we understand by the term “resilience”
  • describing outcomes, driving action and monitoring progress
  • adapting to coastal change
  • corporation tax relief for business contributions
  • local funding initiatives for flood risk management
  • developer contributions
  • managing financial risks from flooding
