Salford strategic flood forum

The Salford strategic flood forum was established following discussions with the executive lead member for strategic planning at the time regarding the best way to implement recommendations arising from the Pitt Review into the 2007 floods.

The forum is chaired by Councillor Mike McCusker (lead member for planning and sustainable development) and is attended by officers with planning, drainage and emergency planning expertise, as well as by external partners such as the Environment Agency, United Utilities and the University of Salford. It plays an important co-ordinating role in addressing the city council's responsibilities under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010.

A background report is available to download below which sets out in some detail the reasons for creating the forum and its terms of reference.
