National Flood Resilience strategy consultation

A consultation on a proposed National Flood Resilience strategy seeks views on how to build community flood resilience and engage a broader range of delivery partners to implement more diverse flood management actions faster.

Actions to complement existing and planned flood protection measures could include:

  • more natural flood management measures like tree planting and use of natural landforms to slow run-off and capture water
  • greater use of blue-green infrastructure such as urban green spaces and ponds to reduce the amount of water flowing into drains
  • improved community resilience, such as through the funding and training of local flood groups to help communities prepare for, respond to and recover from flooding events.
