Norfolk Strategic Flood Alliance - Strategy
Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Endorse the NFSA Strategy
RESOLVED that Cabinet endorse the Norfolk Strategic Flood Alliance Strategy.
Reasons for the decision:
It is recommended that the Council endorses the NFSA strategy and work programme outlined within it. If the Council were not to do so it would be in contradiction to the Council’s policy position on sustainability and its climate emergency declaration. Positively supporting the NFSA strategy provides a strategic commitment to assist the important need to help Breckland’s communities with the alleviation of flood-risk and in-time improve the infrastructure needed in the face of the environmental changes occurring.
Alternative options considered:
Option 1: The Council endorses the NFSA strategy and the work being undertaken by the members of the NFSA to support communities in Norfolk to lessen the threat of flood risk.
Option 2: The Council does not endorse and support the NFSA strategy. This is not recommended as it is not in keeping with its policy position on climate change and sustainability.
