National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy for England

The Environment Agency has published a strategy that sets out a vision of a nation ready for, and resilient to, flooding and coastal change to the year 2100.

The Flood and Water Management Act 2010 places a statutory duty on the
Environment Agency to develop a National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk
Management Strategy for England. This Strategy describes what needs to
be done by all risk management authorities involved in flood and coastal
erosion risk management for the benefit of people and places. This
includes the Environment Agency, lead local flood authorities, district
councils, internal drainage boards, highways authorities and water and
sewerage companies, who must exercise their flood and coastal erosion
risk management activities, including plans and strategies, consistently
with the Strategy.
