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

The Environment Agency is looking to recruit two new independent members for the South West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee.
The Committee’s aim is to shape local flood and coastal management plans and help influence the future of the environment.
We are currently recruiting for the following members:
- A coastal processes representative
- A nature and conservation representative
The Environment Agency is a diverse organisation which takes pride in welcoming applicants from all sections of the community. You don’t need to be a flood or environmental expert to make a valuable contribution to the RFCC’s work. We need a diverse range of members bringing different experiences and viewpoints to the table.
If you are interested in joining the committee and would like to apply for one of these vacancies, please contact Zoe Smith at email@example.com who will send you further information and an application pack.
The closing date for applications is midnight on Sunday 6 December 2020.
