Detail of outcome
We reviewed the responses to the consultation and used these to shape the final business plan.
In response to the consultation feedback we:
- made the business plan shorter and more concise, moving detail which will change over time to The Flood Hub website
- reflected the longer term ambition for flood and coastal erosion risk management as context for the 3-year timeframe of the plan
- simplified the presentation of our aims into priorities
- increased the emphasis on coastal flood risk and erosion management throughout the plan
The business plan was formally approved by the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee at the meeting on 19 July 2019.
The final North West RFCC Business Plan is now available on The Flood Hub.
North West RFCC Business Plan
We have produced a business plan for the RFCC, covering the 3 year period from 2019 to 2022. This is so we are clear:
- what we want to achieve
- how we will do it
The plan is partly for ourselves but also to communicate and engage with those who:
- will benefit from our work
- we might work in partnership with
The business plan sets out our priorities and high level actions for the period to 2022. It will be supplemented by an annual action plan setting out the actions that will be delivered in each financial year in more detail. We will monitor progress on delivery through our quarterly meetings to ensure we’re on track and adapt to change accordingly.
Detail of feedback received
The results of the public consultation indicated there was overwhelming support for the North West RFCC and the proposals laid out in the business plan.
A summary of the responses as well as full copies of all responses are on The Flood Hub.
The Environment Agency is running this consultation on behalf of the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC).
The North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC) is one of 12 RFCCs in England. RFCCs were established under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010, to bring together the authorities responsible for managing flood and coastal erosion risk (Environment Agency, Lead Local Flood Authorities and water and sewerage companies).
So that we are clear about what we want to achieve and how we will do it, we have produced a draft business plan for the RFCC, covering the 3 year period from 2019 to 2022. The business plan sets out who we are, how we operate, and our long terms goals. From these we have identified priorities and objectives for the period to 2022. We have produced the plan partly for ourselves but also to communicate and engage with those who will benefit from our work and those who we might work in partnership with.
