Trent Valley Internal Drainage Board

Partnership Working

TVIDB works in partnership with other relevant water management authorities such as:

  • Environment Agency (EA)
  • Nottinghamshire County Council - the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA)
  • Bassetlaw District Council
  • Gedling Borough Council
  • Melton Borough Council
  • Newark and Sherwood District Council
  • North Kesteven District Council
  • Rushcliffe Borough Council
  • West Lindsey District Council
  • Severn Trent Water (STW)
  • Anglian Water (AW)
  • other Internal Drainage Boards (IDBs).


An example of partnership working is:

· Working with the EA to promote enhanced maintenance of main rivers into which the Board discharges flows of water. Maintenance of these main rivers is essential to ensure that the Board’s systems operate effectively and the level of the protection that they afford is maintained.

 

Nottinghamshire Local Flood Risk Management Strategy

Recent Legislative Changes - The enactment of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010, gave a duty to Nottinghamshire County Council, as the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) for the County. This requires the LLFA to work with other Risk Management Authorities to develop, maintain, apply and monitor a Local Flood Risk Management Strategy, consistent with the Environment Agency's National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy.

The LLFA saw this as an opportunity to build on the successful ways that all Risk Management Authorities are working together to provide a shared vision on how flood risk and drainage should be managed in the future.
