Detail

This new Surface Water Management Plan (SWMP) guidance seeks to provide a simplified overarching framework which allows different organisations to work together and develop a shared understanding of the most suitable solutions to surface water flooding problems.

Principally, the SWMP guidance has been written for local authorities to assist them as they co-ordinate and lead local flood risk management activities.
