Cumbria strategic flood group
In the immediate aftermath of the December 2015 floods, the Secretary of State announced the formation of the Cumbria Floods Partnership, and government agreed to invest more money in flood risk management across Cumbria.
In 2017 a new Cumbria Strategic Flood Partnership was formed, bringing together the flood Risk Management Authorities including Environment Agency, Cumbria County Council, District Councils, and United Utilities and a wide range of representatives from other organisations and community groups who have an interest or responsibility for flood risk management.
We are looking for an impartial Chair who will help strengthen and improve the partnership ensuring that communities are central to all our work. A new chairperson would build on and maintain strong relationships with representatives and stakeholders from a wide range of organisations and community groups.
