Surrey Local Flood Risk Management Strategy

As the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) for Surrey, the County Council is responsible for publishing a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy. This document sets out how we manage the risk of flooding across the County.

The County Council is designated as LLFA under the Flood and Water Management Act (2010). The Act states that an LLFA has a duty to "develop, maintain, apply and monitor a Strategy for local flood risk management in its area".

2017 Strategy refresh

Surrey County Council first published its Local Flood Risk Management Strategy in 2014. In order to keep it up-to-date we refreshed the Strategy in 2017. The document is subject to regular review and any changes will be incorporated and republished here.

If you have any questions regarding the Strategy, or wish to view it in an accessible format, please contact
