Coastal Defences- Local flood risk and surface water management strategies and plans

What do we want to know?: Southend-on-Sea Borough Council  needs to understand the views of residents & businesses, stakeholders including the emergency services, Parks, Highways and Planning departments, elected members and Equality Analysis impacted groups concerning the range of sources of surface water flooding, & possible means of mitigating the effects of such flooding, which may exist.  This is to confirm whether the widest possible range of such issues has been considered in its draft Local Flood Risk Management Strategy, as required under the Floods and Water Management Act, 2010.
