Flood management

We are a Lead Local Flood Authority with responsibilities relating to local flood risk from surface water runoff, groundwater, small rivers, streams and ditches. Flooding from main rivers remains the responsibility of the Environment Agency.

The Flood and Water Management Act 2010 requires Lead Local Flood Authorities to develop and apply a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (PDF) that:

  • specifies the roles of the different authorities that have responsibilities for managing flood risk in Enfield
  • describes how Enfield is working with partners to reduce flood risk
  • provides an overall assessment of local flood risk
  • sets out the objectives for managing local flood risk
  • outlines what actions are to be taken to meet those objectives

You can learn more about our approach to flood risk in the following documents.

Email flooding@enfield.gov.uk if you would like the maps referred to in the above documents or for more information about flooding in Enfield.
