Lead Local Flood Authority
Nottinghamshire County Council is now a Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) and has new powers and duties for managing flooding from local sources, namely Ordinary Watercourses, surface water (overland runoff) and groundwater in the administrative area of Nottinghamshire.
Find out what our duties are and what we've been working on.
Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment
Nottinghamshire County Council was required by the Flood Risk Regulations (2009) to prepare a Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment (PFRA). The PFRA is a high level screening exercise to identify areas where there is significant flood risk in national terms for reporting to Europe (known as Flood Risk Areas).
Find out more about the Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment and view the report.
Local Flood Risk Management Strategy
Flooding has had a significant impact on local communities in the County in the past, and the County Council is currently developing a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy which will set out how organisations and communities should work together to manage this risk.
