Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
This booklet tells you about a draft Catchment Flood Management Plan (CFMP) that we have recently published for North Norfolk. The Draft CFMP outlines the Agency's current understanding of flood risk in the catchment, assesses future flood risk and identifies flood risk management policies. This booklet aims to: inform - and get responses from - interested groups or individuals on why and how flooding might occur and the impacts of it; obtain your views on which flood risk management policies might be appropriate over the life of the plan. A Catchment Flood Management Plan provides an overview for managing the long-term risk of flooding in a particular area. CFMPs identify the main factors influencing flood flows and flood risk, and assess how they may change overtime. The final plan will outline sustainable flood risk management policies that will provide a balance between cost effectiveness, social needs, demands on land use for development and the environment over the next 50-100 years. It includes a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) that looks at how our proposed policies might affect the environment. The CFMP seeks to make sure that we provide a high level of protection and improvement, wherever possible, to safeguard the environment for the future.
