Enfield Borough Council council is asking for people’s views on new plans to reduce flooding.

The number of properties at risk of flooding in Enfield is high compared to most other local authorities, so the council says a wide range of flood systems are required to manage any potential risks of flooding.

In its latest draft plans, Enfield Borough Council outlines its objectives to reduce flooding, which include protecting existing properties from flooding, reducing run-off rates and maintaining its flood risk management assets by carrying out regular inspections.

Cllr Daniel Anderson, Enfield Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “Enfield Council is now a lead local flood authority with responsibilities relating to local flood risk from surface water run-off, groundwater and small rivers, streams and ditches.

“We have created a draft strategy which is looking at various ways we can work with partners to reduce and manage any flood risk in Enfield.

“It is now out to public consultation and we are keen to hear the views of local people and organisations.”
