This consultation is now closed. Thank you to everyone who took part.

This page will be updated when there is further information.


Kent County Council (KCC) is the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) for Kent. As the LLFA, we have an overview role for local flooding, which is flooding that arises from these sources:

  • Surface runoff
  • Ordinary watercourses
  • Groundwater

One of our duties as the LLFA is to develop, maintain, apply, and monitor a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (Local Strategy) that sets out how we will propose to manage these flood risks.

Have your say

We would like to hear your views on our draft Kent Local Flood Risk Management Strategy 2024 - 2034 which sets out how local flood risk will be managed in the county by the risk management authorities involved.

Your feedback is important in helping us to ensure we have set a suitably ambitious, but achievable strategy; one which meets the needs and expectations of Kent residents.
