The Lancashire Partnership is one of five Flood & Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM) Partnerships reporting to the North West RFCC alongside Cumbria, Merseyside, Cheshire Mid-Mersey and The Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA). All the FCERM Partnerships in the North West bring together the key agencies/authorities and other organisations/stakeholders to deliver an integrated and collaborative approach to manage flood risk.
The Lancashire partnership includes all Risk Management Authorities (RMA) as defined in the Flood and Water Management Act; the Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFAs), the Environment Agency, United Utilities, and in Lancashire, the twelve district authorities. The Lead Local Flood Authorities in Lancashire are Lancashire County Council, Blackpool Council and Blackburn-with-Darwen Council, who also have duties as the highway authority with regard to the management of flood risk.
As well as the RMAs, the partnership works with the river catchment management groups, and community and flood action groups.
