Leicester local flood risk management strategy approval

Closed 28 Jan 2015

Opened 22 Dec 2014

Feedback Updated 27 Feb 2015

We Asked

whether the public, and our stakeholders approved of the changes we made to the Leicester Local Flood Risk management Strategy after listening to their responses to the first draft circulated in September 2014. We contacted everybody that responded to our first consultation, explaining what changes we made based on their feedback.

You Said

The majority was happy with amendments made to the document with one reservation about cycle paths and one comment on proof reading which was not concerning the strategy.

We Did

We saw no need to make further changes, having dealt with the cycle issue via another group. The document went to the executive for approval and will be available to the public in March 2015.

Results Updated 27 Feb 2015

We emailed everybody that responded to the first consultation and had asked for updates. We also circulated the document around partners and put information on our website.

There were four responses. Three were happy for the strategy to remain as it was, one was partly happy but has a concern about cycling and this issue was addressed informally and there was one against but this was to do with text errors rather than strategy content and was about the research documents rather than the strategy.  

This meant we were happy to leave the strategy as it was and the strategy went to the executive for approval, to be made publicly available from March 2015.




Between 7 August and 12 October 2014, we consulted on our draft local flood risk management strategy.

This involved an online survey, presentations and displays in the community, and some attendance at major events to raise awareness of flooding issues.

Why We Are Consulting

Once we received your feedback, we amended our strategy in line with your comments and suggestions.

We now need to know whether we got it right.

What Happens Next

We need you to tell us that you are happy the new strategy has included your comments.

I you are not happy, please tell us what needs to be changed.
