Resilience

We have changed the way we work with partners and the Government to look after our heritage and protect the countryside and homes from flooding. We have new partnerships in place that are creating exciting new plans that will allow us to better manage our heritage and invest in ways to prevent flooding for many years to come. These arrangements have revolutionised the way we work, and have set the foundations for potential future devolution asks.

 Before the Devolution Deal work with partners around flood prevention had been happening in a disjointed manner, now Cornwall Council, the Environment Agency, South West Water and others are working in a formalised manner to forward plan and produce an integrated evidence based flooding and coastal management programme for the longer term.

Local communities are being supported to develop proactive Local Flood Risk Profiles using a holistic place-based approach which will inform the wider strategic planning.
