Decision due date: 28/09/2017

Wards affected: (All Wards);

Lead officer: Steve Hodges

Notice of decision: 18/09/2017

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
Herefordshire Council, as Lead Local Flood Authority for the county has a statutory duty to develop, maintain, apply and monitor a Strategy for local flood risk management in its area. The deadline for finalising the strategy is 31 October 2017 and if this is not achieved, there is a risk that government will instruct another risk management authority to carry out our role in relation to the strategy and to recover the costs for this work from us.

This item was published as a non-key decision on 25 August 2017. It has now been determined that this decision should be a key decision. Government have previously been informed that the strategy would be considered by cabinet on 28 September 2017 and it is necessary to adhere to this date in order to meet the deadline for finalising the strategy.

The Chairman of the relevant scrutiny committee has been informed of the matter.
