Merseyside Flood & Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM) Partnership

Who we are

The Merseyside FCERM Partnership is a collective grouping of the main authorities who manage flood risk and coastal erosion in Merseyside; that is Knowsley, Liverpool City, Sefton, and Wirral Councils who lead on local flood risk management, the Environment Agency, and United Utilities and Dŵr Cymru / Welsh Water (for a small section of Wirral) as the water and sewerage companies.

The Mersey Rivers Trust is a partner organisation who also provide local expertise and with whom we work closely with in supporting the delivery of water quality improvements and catchment scale benefits to our rivers and waterways

Our Partnership also works closely with St Helens and Halton Councils who sit within the Cheshire Mid-Mersey FCERM Partnership in matters relating to the Liverpool City Region (LCR) Combined Authority. Click here for further information.


What we do

The Partnership takes an overview of flood and coastal erosion risk management across Merseyside to:

  • Identify priorities and steer the use of our resources.
  • Vote on changes to the Local Levy raised by the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee.
  • Support and deliver investment which is good value for money and benefits our communities.
