The Environment and Waste Management Overview Scrutiny Committee undertook a wider scrutiny review into water management across the District following the devastating winter 2015 floods. The Water Management Scrutiny Review was endorsed by the Environment and Waste Management Overview Scrutiny Committee at their meeting on 4th July 2017 where it was recommended to be considered by the Corporate Overview and Scrutiny Committee in their meeting on the 26th October 2017 where it was subsequently endorsed.

 

Following its adoption, The Water Management Scrutiny Review included twenty-six recommendations and it was resolved that a report would be made in the following twelve months which monitored progress against all the recommendations contained in the review. Within the October 2019 report it was again resolved by the Regeneration and Environment Overview Committee that an update report would be presented in a further twelve months.

 

The report of the Interim Strategic Director for Place (Document “I”) briefly outlines the progress made and the status of each of the twenty-six recommendations in the last twelve months.
