Flood Risk Management Partnership

The flooding which occurred in summer 2007 highlighted the need for organisations responsible for managing flood risk to work together. Recommendations from the Pitt Review lead to the development of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010.  Lincolnshire County Council and its partners saw an opportunity to work together to deliver the requirements of the Act and throughout 2009 worked closely together to create the Lincolnshire Flood Risk and Drainage Management Partnership Framework.  The framework ensures that all agencies responsible for managing water operate more effectively and efficiently at a local level.

The partnership was developed during 2009 and was formally established in April 2010.  Its members include:

  • Lincolnshire County Council
  • The Environment Agency (Anglian Region, Northern Area)
  • The 14 Internal Drainage Boards operating in Lincolnshire
  • The 7 District Councils in Lincolnshire
  • The 2 Water Companies operating in Lincolnshire
  • Natural England
  • The Regional Flood & Coastal Committee (Anglian Region, Northern Area)
  • The Lincolnshire Resilience Forum

The attached diagram illustrates the organisation and accountability arrangements of the Lincolnshire Flood Risk and Drainage Management Partnership Framework.

This framework has led to excellent working relationships with all partners and in partnership a number of flood relief schemes have been delivered on the ground.
