Local Flood Risk Management Strategy

Closed 8 Nov 2021

Opened 27 Sep 2021


The statutory duties of the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) sit with the Council. One of the duties of the LLFA is to write, review and maintain a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (LFRMS) which outlines the measures and actions that Lewisham will take to reduce flood risk in the borough.

The previous LFRMS was published in 2015 and now needs to be reviewed and updated. We would welcome hearing  from members of the public on their views about the draft LFRMS.
