Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The aim of the Flood Defence function is to provide effective defence for people and property against flooding from rivers and the sea, and to provide timely warning systems such that effective actions can be taken to minimise the impact of flooding. This will be achieved by undertaking works that are technically sound, economically justifiable and environmentally acceptable. The Eastern Area of the Environment Agency Anglian Region comprises Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. The Area is an operational unit, headed by the Area Manager, who is a member of the Regional Management Team. Its structure is based on integrated catchment management to enhance the effectiveness of the efficient delivery of services across all Agency functions at Area level. Flood Defence personnel are split into client and contractor groups in recognition of the need to apply market testing to Agency operations in order to demonstrate its ability to provide value for money. The client group is headed by the Area Flood Defence Manager supported in Norfolk and Suffolk by a Catchment Engineer. The Emergency Workforce and supervisory staff are headed by the Direct Services Manager.
