People in West Norfolk will be able to have their say on a flood risk management strategy later this month.

Norfolk County Council has launched a final consultation on its draft Local Flood Risk Management Strategy.

The council, as a Lead Local Flood Authority, has a duty to manage flood risk from surface water, groundwater and local watercourses across the county.

The consultation is open until May 25, and the strategy, subject to responses received from the public, will be formally adopted later in the year.

A drop in session will be held on Wednesday, May 13, from 11am in Kings Court, Lynn.

Jason Slack, of the Flood and Water Management Team said: “Flooding can have a significant impact on the people and the economy of the county. Whilst it is not possible to prevent all flooding, we can consider and find ways to manage flood risk and its potential consequences.

“The draft strategy sets out the framework for how we want to manage, and where possible, reduce local flood risk. We will do this in partnership with key organisations as well as local communities.”
