Flood and water management (Mc9)
Portfolio: Economy and Regeneration Portfolio
The proposal is to reduce the Flood and Water Management Act budget by £20,000. The rationale is that the budget has been underspending on the Stockton contract (which delivers many of the Flood and Water Management Act functions for Darlington).
There is a risk that if the new SuDs work includes numerous complex cases it may not be possible to meet all of the saving as additional work will be required by Stockton on our behalf.
