Details

The Environment Agency is revising the strategy. See the revised National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy for England for more details. The 2011 strategy remains current until the revised strategy is adopted.

The Environment Agency has a statutory duty to develop, maintain, apply and monitor a national flood and coastal erosion risk management strategy. This is a requirement of Section 7 of the Flood and Water Management Act (FWMA) 2010. The FWMA also lists what the strategy must cover, states that it requires public consultation and the Secretary of State must approve it.
