Over the past year, Lincolnshire County Council along with partners including West Lindsey District Council, the Environment Agency, Internal Drainage Boards, Anglian Water and other District Councils have been looking at ways to best manage flood risk and water in the county.
They've put together a consultation document with their key thoughts and they'd like to get your views.
It looks at areas where water is an important factor such as farming, economic hotspots and the environment as well as how businesses and communities across Lincolnshire, can be better protected against flooding.
It also identifies what water resources are currently available in Lincolnshire, and discusses whether these are appropriate for housing and economic developments, both now and in the future.
The document also looks at ways residents and communities could become more resilient.
Paper copies of the proposal are available – please call 01522 782070 or email FloodAndWaterStrategy@lincolnshire.gov.uk for a copy. Alternatively, you can pop in to County Offices, Newland, Lincoln, LN11YL and a copy will be available behind reception.
There are two ways to respond, you can:
Lincolnshire County Council are hosting a number of drop in events across the county that they’d like you to attend. The event for the West Lindsey area will take place on 11 June at the White Heather, Caenby Corner between 12pm and 7pm.
Views and responses will be collated and reviewed by the Flood Risk and Water Management Partnership prior to the Strategy being introduced later in 2019.
