Consultation: Regional Flood and Coastal Committees – Scheme of Membership

Consultation start: 20/12/2010
Consultation end: 28/01/2011

Summary from the Environment Agency:

The Flood and Water Management Act 2010 has made a number of changes to the Regional Flood Defence Committees (RFDCs). As well as agreeing to the Environment Agency’s regional programme, the name of the RFDCs will change to Regional Flood and Coastal Committees (RFCCs). This reflects their broader responsibilities for coastal erosion as set out in the Act. The government has indicated that RFDCs will transition to RFCCs in April 2011. This means that any new appointments must reflect the membership requirements for the new committees as set out in the Scheme of Membership.

We would like to hear your views on the draft Scheme of Membership before it is submitted to Ministers for final approval in March 2011.
