Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

This document is a revision of the previous Cambridgeshire Flood Risk Management Strategy (2015-20). Created by Cambridgeshire County Council as Lead Local Flood Authority in consultation with its partner organisations, it outlines how flood risk will be managed across Cambridgeshire between 2021 and 2027.

The strategy sets out;

  • Background
  • Local and National context
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • An overview of risk
  • Funding opportunities
  • Management activities and Actions prioritised to manage identified risks

The revised strategy has built in learning from recent flood events and industry developments since 2015. It looks to provide an overview of the wide range of flood related information, signposting areas you may wish to understand in more depth rather than duplicating other sources.

This strategy has been produced to be consistent with other local strategies, regional Flood Risk Management Plans (FRMP) and River Basin Management Plans (RBMP) as well as needing to provide sufficient consideration of the National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy. Consultations on the proposed FRMP and RBMP remain open online and feedback can be provided separately to the Environment Agency for those plans.

Separate to the Cambridgeshire Flood Risk Management Strategy, work is under way to provide guidance and support for riparian responsibilities, this will be available on the county council website in 2022.

We would welcome feedback on the strategy. The documents attached to this page can be reviewed and responses provided through the survey. The survey is divided into sections to match the strategy so feedback can be more easily targeted. A brief overview of each section and prompt questions within the survey are designed to help the reader in considering their response, however we are open to wider feedback.

If there is any additional information or evidence you wish to provide please forward these to floodandwater@cambridgeshire.gov.uk.

If you wish to report specific flooding issues then please visit our Report a flood page.
