The Jubilee River story - Flood & Water Management Act 2010 - Northumberland

Northumberland County Council Agenda - 2 February 2011

Agenda - Item 12

On 1 April 2011 it is anticipated that the Council will become the Lead Local Flood Authority for Northumberland with a number of regulatory and licensing responsibilities. The detailed regulations are still to be made by DEFRA. Whilst there will be reports to members on aspects of those functions when the detail becomes clear, it is recommended, for the avoidance of any doubt, that the Corporate Director of Local Services be authorised to exercise the Council's functions and responsibilities as a Lead Local Flood Authority.
