Local Flood Risk Management Strategy
As a designated lead local flood authority, Portsmouth City Council has completed a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (LFRMS) to recommend measures to manage and improve the flood risk of the city. As funding is limited, the strategy includes the costs for each measure and the benefits each will provide. This approach allows funds to be targeted to areas where the benefits will be greatest.
The strategy is focused on a ward by ward basis, and has been approved by our flood risk management partners and Portsmouth City Council’s Chief Executive Officer for publication.
