Update December 2017 – Final Strategy Adopted

Thank you to everyone who took part in the consultation for our Local Flood Risk Management Strategy 2017-2023. Responses to the consultation have helped to shape the final strategy.

The draft strategy and consultation responses were discussed at the Environment & Transport Cabinet Committee on Thursday, 30th November, 2017. Subsequently the Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste has made the Key Decision to adopt the final Local Flood Risk Management Strategy 2017-2023. The final strategy and Consultation Report are available to download from the ‘Summary of Results’ section below. 


Original Consultation Text


Kent County Council (KCC) is the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) for Kent.  As the LLFA, we must produce a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (local strategy) that sets out how local flood risks will be managed in the county by the authorities involved.

Have Your Say

We would like your views on the draft strategy in order to help us produce the final version of the strategy by December 2017.

Please let us know your thoughts by completing the online questionnaire (via the 'Respond to this Consultation' section).

We have published a copy of our Equality Impact Assessment (EqIA) for you to read and make comments on via the consultation questionnaire. 

Flood and Water Management Asset Register survey

We thought you might also like to now that we are developing a new digital channel to provide information to the public about flooding and flood risk in the county. We would like to hear your views on how you access information about flooding and flood risk management and what you would like to see in an online flood risk management resource.

Take part in the survey.
