Binnies proud to support second cycle flood risk management plans
Binnies is delighted to have supported the Environment Agency to develop second cycle flood risk management plans (FRMPs) for England, which have been published today.
FRMPs are strategic plans that set out how flood risk from rivers, sea and surface water will be managed for the period 2021-2027. This is the second cycle of FRMPs and there are plans for each of England’s ten river basin districts. They include objectives and measures which will help deliver the ambitions and goals of the National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy for England and the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan.
Our experts in strategic planning, project management and communications and engagement Hannah Coogan, Patricia Cuervo, Naomi Doble, Emily Shaw, Alex Powell and Louise Dale have worked seamlessly with Environment Agency national and area teams to produce the plans. We are proud of the work we have done in partnership with the Environment Agency and Lead Local Flood Authorities to develop and review the plans and measures for managing flood risk across the plan period. In addition, we were embedded into the area team in the South East to co-ordinate and lead the development of the FRMP, working with Risk Management Authorities across the region. This work builds upon the work that Binnies is delivering in partnership with the Environment Agency in other projects such as Thames Estuary 2100 and the River Thames Scheme.
Hannah Coogan, Regional Delivery Director, Flood, Coast and Maritime said: ‘It has been a privilege to support the Environment Agency to develop these plans over a number of years. Most of this work was done remotely during the COVID pandemic, which has brought out the best in our staff working collaboratively during challenging times. The FRMPs gave us a great focus and builds on our background experience, working as project managers, strategists and engagement professionals on flood risk management studies, including local flood risk management strategies, catchment flood management plans, capital project and programme delivery. The measures in the plans are vitally important for delivering a wide range of flood risk management measures and supporting communities to become more resilient to flooding.’
