Defra has launched a call for evidence to inform the government's flooding and coastal erosion policy statement which is due to be published by the end of 2019.
The specific questions posed and call for evidence document can be found here.
The deadline for responding is 19 August 2019.
To ensure that we can continue to manage these risks effectively, the government will, by the end of 2019, set out its policy direction to better prepare the country for future flooding and coastal erosion – making the most of the opportunities for wider economic, social and environmental benefits in our towns, countryside and coast. This call for evidence is an opportunity for you to provide evidence which will inform some specific aspects of government policy on flooding and coastal erosion, and influence the development of the government policy statement on flooding and coastal erosion.
