Kent County Council (KCC) is the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) for Kent.  As the LLFA, we must produce a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (local strategy) that sets out how local flood risks will be managed in the county by the authorities involved.

Have Your Say

We would like your views on the draft strategy in order to help us produce the final version of the strategy by December 2017.

Please let us know your thoughts by completing the online questionnaire (via the ‘Respond to this Consultation’ section).

We have published a copy of our Equality Impact Assessment (EqIA) for you to read and make comments on via the consultation questionnaire.

Flood and Water Management Asset Register survey

We thought you might also like to now that we are developing a new digital channel to provide information to the public about flooding and flood risk in the county. We would like to hear your views on how you access information about flooding and flood risk management and what you would like to see in an online flood risk management resource.

Take part in the survey.

Annual river maintenance

River Stour weed cuttingContractors for the Environment Agency are cutting back weeds along the both the Great Stour and the East Stour as part of the annual maintenance regime.

We reported last January on the major bankside cutback that was undertaken following a long period without any maintenance that had led to concerns regarding the capacity of the river to carry flood water. The EA said that that annual maintenance would be undertaken ahead of the winter period.
