37.1 The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.
37.2 RESOLVED to (1) Note the progress made on delivering the actions set out in the Local Flood Risk Management Strategy Delivery Plan 2017/18 (Appendix 1 of the report); and
(2) Endorse the proposed draft Delivery Plan for the period up until the end of March 2023 (Appendix 2 of the report).
37.3 The adopted Local Flood Risk Management Strategy commits the County Council to regular reviews of the Delivery Plan. The Delivery Plan outlines strategic actions undertaken by the Risk Management Authorities in East Sussex and other key partners, to address local flooding issues.
37.4 As many of the actions set out in the Delivery Plan often have a long delivery timeframe, it is considered sensible that rather than covering a 12 month period, the Delivery Plan should cover a much longer period in order for reporting on progress to be meaningful.
