Local flood risk management strategy

We are a lead local flood authority and are responsible for producing, maintaining, applying and monitoring a local flood risk management strategy.

Further information

This forms the framework we use to engage local communities in developing local flood risk management decisions, and explains how we support them to become better informed about flood risk issues.

Deciding on the strategy

A stakeholder’s consultation event was held before the strategy was made available for public viewing. We invited representatives from organisations we work alongside to help mitigate risk of flooding in Leicester and asked partners for their input and recommendations for the draft strategy.

After the event, recommendations were included into the strategy which was then released for public consultation and later approved by our executive. You can download the report below.
