Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
This booklet tells you about a Scoping Report we have recently published on flood related issues within the North Norfolk catchment. This booklet aims to: inform, and get responses from interested groups or individuals on our understanding of why and how flooding might occur and the impacts of it; obtain your views on how we intend to assess which flood risk management policies might be appropriate over the life of the plan. A Catchment Flood Management Plan is a plan that provides an overview for managing the long-term risk of flooding in a particular area. CFMPs will identify the main factors influencing flood flows and flood risk and will assess how they may change overtime. The final plan will outline sustainable flood risk management policies that will provide a balance between cost effectiveness, social needs, demands on land use for development and the environment over the next 50-100 years. It will include a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) that will look at how the policy options we propose might affect the environment. It will seek to make sure that we provide a high level of protection and enhancement, wherever possible, to safeguard the environment for the future. The CFMP area comprises a relatively narrow strip of land along the North Norfolk coast, which stretches from Old Hunstanton in the west to Happisburgh in the east, and extends from the North Sea coast to just short of Fakenham in the south.
