Flooding and flood water management in Hampshire

Hampshire Strategic Flood & Water Management Partnership Board

In response to the new duties and powers given to the County Council in its new role as Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) under the Flood & Water Management Act 2010 we established an officer group to begin to address the requirements of the Act in early 2010.

The Partnership Board is supported by a technical delivery group which meets quarterly and brings together all of the relevant flood risk management organisations including representatives from the County Council as well as the water companies, the Environment Agency, adjoining LLFAs (Southampton, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight), district councils along with parish councils and the two national parks in Hampshire.

Implementing the Act is a new learning process for everyone so we aim to share experiences and best practice and achieve a joined-up and consistent approach to managing flood risk.
