flood and water management act 2010

Statutory Drivers for Adaptation

Flood and Water Management Act (2010)

  • Surface water run-off
  • Groundwater
  • Watercourses
  • Combination of local risks with fluvial and/or sea flooding

The Act required each Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) to produce a local flood risk management strategy addressing local sources of flood risk, such as:

LLFAs are responsible for ensuring the completion of a Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment (PFRA) and approval of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS).

civil contingencies act 2004

Statutory Drivers for Adaptation

Civil Contingencies Act (2004)

  • Severe Weather storms, heat wave, snow and ice, flooding, wild fires, drought
  • Structural Hazards land movement, building or bridge collapse, reservoir or dam failure
  • Industrial or Technical failure electricity, gas, water, communications

The Act requires local authorities to design detailed plans for natural disasters including those caused by climate change:

water framework directive 2000

Statutory Drivers for Adaptation

Water Framework Directive (2000)

  • Planning Policy
  • Development Management
  • Drainage and flood risk management
  • Open space and green infrastructure
  • Highways design and maintenance
  • Environmental management & pollution controls
  • Managing local authority estates & buildings

Local authorities have a role in delivering and achieving the Water Framework Directive (WFD) to help the natural environment adapt to the impacts of climate change.

What are the key LA functions which can contribute to WFD objectives?

localism act 2011

Statutory Drivers for Adaptation

Localism Act (2011)

  • Neighbourhood Development Plans: Community action on climate change
  • Duty to cooperate: Cross boundary adaptation activities

Local Authorities can use a range of provisions in the Localism Act to implement action on climate change.

planning and compulsory purchase act 2004

Statutory Drivers for Adaptation

Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act (2004)

  • It includes the duty on plan-making to mitigate and adapt to climate change

Marine and Coastal Access Act (2009)

Sets out the structure of the local planning framework for England.

Helps ensure the sustainable development of the marine and coastal environment.

Local planning authorities should reduce risk from coastal change by :

  • avoiding inappropriate development in vulnerable areas; or
  • adding to the impacts of physical changes to the coast.
