Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (LFRMS)
For its statutory responsibilities as a Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA), we've developed a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (LFRMS). This document has been developed to better understand and better manage flood risk within the borough, as well as formalising and developing our partnerships in respect of flood risk, and progressing the high level screening which was introduced in the PFRA.
The strategy clearly illustrates Warrington's links with other key risk management authorities that are responsible for managing aspects of flooding. It also highlights the LLFA's role in managing flood risk locally and in the development and maintenance of a structured local flood risk strategy.
Strategic Flood Risk Assessment
The National Planning Policy Framework requires an assessment of flood risk to be carried out to an appropriate degree at all levels of the planning process. The Warrington level 1 SFRA was published in 2009 and is the second tier in a hierarchy of flood risk documents.
