The Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC) is a committee established by the Environment Agency under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 that brings together members appointed by Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFAs) and independent members with relevant experience for 3 purposes:
- to ensure there are coherent plans for identifying, communicating and managing flood and coastal erosion risks across catchments and shorelines
- to encourage efficient, targeted and risk-based investment in flood and coastal erosion risk management that represents value for money and benefits local communities
- to provide a link between the Environment Agency, LLFAs, other risk management authorities, and other relevant bodies to build understanding of flood and coastal erosion risks in its area
Date of next meeting
Thursday 27 January 2022.

The Northumbria Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (NRFCC) is seeking applications for two independent members. The independent members will hold specialism in industry finance, climate change, urban design and planning, civil engineering, or surface water. The independent members will ideally have knowledge of flooding and flood risk management. The Committee’s aim is to shape local flood and coastal management plans and help influence the future of the environment.
The Environment Agency is a diverse organisation which takes pride in welcoming applicants from all sections of the community. We welcome a diverse range of members bringing different experiences and viewpoints to the table.
As an industry finance, climate change, surface water, planning or civil engineering specialist you should be well-regarded in the sector and possess significant knowledge of relevant current issues in the area relating to flooding.
The Committee meets four times a year for RFCC meetings. Members may also be asked to take part in or chair the Programming and Investment Subgroup which makes recommendations on matters relating to programming and investment and the environment, or the Risk Management Subgroup which assesses and mitigates key risks to our programme. In addition, from time to time, RFCC members are asked to represent the Committee at other meetings and events.
If you are interested in joining the Committee and would like to apply this vacancy, please contact the NRFCC Secretariat via email at email@example.com who will send you further information and an application pack.
Closing date for applications is 11:59pm on 15 April 2022, interviews are scheduled for 5 May 2022.
