Decision details

19/00086 - Updates to KCC Flood Response Emergency Plan

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Community and Regulatory Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes




KCC is legally required to have Emergency Plans in place to respond to identified threats under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004. The Kent Resilience Forum Risk Register identifies coastal, fluvial and surface water flooding as a key risk in the County, and it is for this reason that KCC is required to have an emergency plan in place to support the planning for and response to such incidents. The decision required is to approve the latest updates to KCC’s Flood Response Emergency Plan.  Once the Cabinet Member for Community and Regulatory Services has approved these updates, the Plan will be published to, uploaded to Resilience Direct and shared with relevant KCC colleagues and resilience partners (including Districts and Parish Councils).


As Cabinet Member for Community and Regulatory Services, I agree to the scope and content of the updated KCC Flood Response Plan.
