Have your say on the Local Flood Risk Management Strategy

Interested in how we plan for flooding?

Tell us your views on our new Local Flood Risk Management Strategy.

The Local Flood Risk Management Strategy sets out how we manage the risk of flooding across Kirklees.

In Kirklees, there are over 44,000 properties currently at risk from different kinds of flooding. We expect these numbers to rise in the future due to climate change.

We want to make our communities, our local businesses and our land more resilient to flooding both now and in the future, to protect and enhance Kirklees for future generations.

As a Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) we have established a strategy for how flood risk will be managed locally. This reflects the objectives of the national strategy and is based on a long-term approach. Before this strategy is adopted, we want local residents to have their say.

This document sets out how Kirklees Council manages local flooding, protecting properties at risk and anticipating climate change.

The consultation closes on the 18th September 2023.
