Draft Flood Risk Management and River Basin Management Plans

The county council has been working with the Environment Agency to produce draft Flood Risk Management Plans (FRMPs) and River Basin Management Plans (RBMPs) for public consultation, and we now want to hear your views.

Draft Flood Risk Management Plans 

This consultation will run from 22 October 2021 - 21 January 2022. 

The draft FRMPs are strategic plans that have actions to address surface water and river and sea flooding and set out how to manage flood risk in nationally identified flood risk areas (FRAs) for the period 2021-2027. These are statutory plans required by the Flood Risk Regulations 2009

In Leicestershire, we have three specific Flood Risk Management Plans which cover the areas of:

  • Loughborough (Humber River Catchment),  
  • Hinckley and Burbage (Humber River Catchment) and  
  • Market Harborough (Anglian River Catchment).  

Let us know your views 

We want your views and comments to help inform a final set of plans and actions to manage flood risk between 2021-2027. 

We invite all interested and affected residents to follow the link below and submit your views via the online consultation forms.  

Details of the FRMP’s, the consultation process and the online response forms can be found on the Draft Flood Risk Management Plans page of the Environment Agency's online consultation hub. 

Draft River Basin Management Plans 

This consultation will run from 22 October 2021 - 22 April 2022. 

As well as our local Flood Risk Management Plans, the Environment Agency is running a 6 month public consultation on draft River Basin Management Plans. The draft RBMPs are strategic plans for protecting and improving the water environment and cover the 11 designated river basins of the UK.  

Leicestershire largely falls into the Humber river basin, with parts of Harborough District and Melton Borough falling into the Anglian river Basin.  

Let us know your views 

Find out more about the draft RBMP’s and submit your views by visiting the Draft river basin management plans page of the Environment Agency's online consultation hub before 22 April 2022.
