This guidance is primarily aimed at officers with responsibilities for flood risk management within Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFAs), to support them in the development and application of their Local Flood Risk Management Strategies under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010. 

The document is intended to supplement other guidance available from Defra, the Lead Government association and the Environment Agency.  It promotes successful collaboration and partnership funding of local flood risk management by enhancing LLFAs understanding of the roles and motivations of those likely to be involved and potential funding sources available.  This is augmented by practical guidance on how opportunities for collaboration and joint funding can be explored and built into the development of local strategies and schemes.
