Detail of outcome
We reviewed the responses to the consultation and used these to shape the final business plan. The plan was reworked to take account of the responses received as far as is felt appropriate and feasible.
Below is a summary of enhancements:
- we made the business plan shorter and more concise, moving some of the detail, particularly that which will change over time, to the Flood Hub website
- we considered whether a 3-year timeframe was still appropriate and clarified how this relates to longer term goals
- we simplified the presentation of our aims (mission statement, themes, goals, objectives, broad actions)
- we increased the emphasis on coastal flood risk and erosion management throughout the Plan
- we referenced development of the Flood Hub
The business plan was formally approved by the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee at the meeting on 19th July 2019.
The final plan is now available on the Floodhub. Read the North West RFCC business plan.
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
We consulted on the draft early in 2019 and adopted the final business plan in July 2019. 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 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.
Consultation responses are available on the Floodhub
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.
