North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee Draft Business Plan 2019 to 2022

Closed 8 Feb 2019

Opened 7 Dec 2018


The Environment Agency is running this consultation on behalf of the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC).

The North West RFCC brings together the authorities responsible for managing flood and coastal erosion risk in the North West of England – that is the Environment Agency, Lead Local Flood Authorities and United Utilities as the water and sewerage company.

In order to be clear about what our priorities are and what we intend to do, we have produced a draft business plan, covering the three year period from 2019 to 2022. 

We are sharing the draft business plan with you as stakeholders and partners to get your feedback on it before we finalise it and implement it from April 2019. 

This consultation sets out a few key questions which you may find helpful to answer to provide us with your feedback.
