Post-legislative scrutiny: Flood and Water Management Act 2010

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, House of Commons

Go to report

The Flood and Water Management Act (the Act) provides the statutory underpinning for flood and water management approaches in England. It is a broad Act which redefined and clarified authorities’ responsibilities for managing flood and coastal erosion risk management, as well as setting out measures on miscellaneous matters from sustainable drainage to the affordability of water customers’ bills. We have scrutinised the effectiveness of many of these measures in previous inquiries. In particular, our recent Future flood prevention report published in November 2016 looked in-depth at the effectiveness of flood risk management approaches set out in the Act.
