South West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC)


The Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC) is a committee established by the Environment Agency under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 that brings together members appointed by Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFAs) and independent members with relevant experience for 3 purposes:


·         to ensure there are coherent plans for identifying, communicating and managing flood and coastal erosion risks across catchments and shorelines

·         to encourage efficient, targeted and risk-based investment in flood and coastal erosion risk management that represents value for money and benefits local communities

·         to provide a link between the Environment Agency, LLFAs, other risk management authorities, and other relevant bodies to build understanding of flood and coastal erosion risks in its area
