Which organisations do IDBs work closely with?

IDBs work closely with many organisations, including local councils and the Enviornment Agency (many of whom are listed below).

The Flood and Water Management Act 2010 established upper-tier authorities, such as Lincolnshire County Council, as ‘Lead Local Flood Authorities’ giving them a new local leadership and co-ordination role in flood risk management. New duties include the management of surface water flooding, something that previously no organisation had specific responsibility for and was highlighted by Sir Michael Pitt in his 2008 report as a key issue.

The Act also established a national overview role for the Environment Agency, to make sure that as a nation we improve the way we approach reducing the risk of flooding, and responding to floods when they happen.

Flood risk management authorities in Lincolnshire have been recognised by Government as among those leading nationally in the development of partnership and co-ordination, through the creation of the development of the Lincolnshire Flood Risk and Drainage Management Partnership Framework.
