The revised flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCERM) strategy requires a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) under the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations.
The scoping stage of SEA decides the issues we should address and the approach. We will present the outcome in the environmental report. This will be published together with the consultation on the draft FCERM Strategy 2050.
We will consult with interested parties, in particular the statutory SEA consultation bodies.
For information about the FCERM Strategy 2050 see the FCERM consultation hub.
