OVERALL OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the evaluation are to: 
• assess the impact of the changes introduced through the Flood and Water Management Act (2010) in relation to the management of local flood risk, 
• evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of LLFAs as a whole, and 
• identify best practice in the way in which LLFAs have delivered their responsibilities, including identifying factors which support and those which act as barriers to improved local flood risk management
• identify the scope for simplification or efficiencies in the definition or delivery of the relevant statutory responsibilities, for example through improved partnership-working.
