Outside body

Anglian (Northern) Regional Flood and Coastal Committee


The RFCC is a committee established by the Environment Agency under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 that brings together members appointed by Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFAs) and independent members with relevant experience for three purposes:

1.  To ensure there are coherent plans for identifying, communicating and managing flood and coastal erosion risks across catchments and shorelines

2.  To promote efficient, targeted and risk-based investment in flood and coastal  erosion  risk management that optimises value for money and benefits for local communities

3.  To provide a link between the Environment Agency, LLFAs, other risk management authorities, and other relevant bodies to engender mutual understanding of flood and coastal erosion risks in its area.


Anglian Region has two Regional Flood and Coastal Committees in the Central and Northern areas, whose composition has been approved by the minister.  They have one transitional Regional Flood and Coastal Committee in Eastern area (whose composition will be approved by the minister in Autumn 2011).   The Committees are made up of a Chairman appointed by the Secretary of State for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and representatives appointed by Local Authorities, and the Environment Agency. The Committee meets quarterly.  Members of the public and press are welcome to attend as non-participatory observers.
