Title: River Welland catchment flood management plan : summary of scoping report, November 2006
Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
A Catchment Flood Management Plan (CFMP) is a plan that provides an overview for managing the long-term risk of flooding in a particular area. This document analyses the River Welland CFMP. CFMPs look at flooding from all sources except for coastal flooding from the sea. This is considered in Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs). CFMPs will identify the main factors influencing flood flows and flood risk and will 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 will include a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) that will look at how the policy options we propose might affect the environment.
