A COMMITTEE that specialises in deciding local flood priorities is looking for a new member.
The Environment Agency wants a recruit to join the North West Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC) which will cover the major river catchments in the region, as well as the coast. People with expertise of working with flooded communities and community engagement are asked to apply.
Coun Derek Antrobus, chairman of the North West RFCC, said: “We all know how seriously floods can affect communities. We have to be the best we can be at managing risks. Membership of the RFCC is one way citizens in the region can help us through their expertise or ability to speak for communities at risk.”
