Following the enactment of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010, LB Hounslow became a lead local flood authority. This gave Hounslow responsibilities for the management of flooding from surface water, groundwater and Ordinary Watercourses sources.
To support the development of the Flood Risk Management Strategy this public consultation seeks to identify how individuals, groups and business would like the council and its partner agencies to focus on local flood management activities.
