Have your say

Fenland people are being invited to join a committee which have a say on local flood management plans.

The Environment Agency is looking for three new members for its Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (RFCC) which covers large parts of Cambridgeshire.

The committee plays an important role in deciding local priorities for flood and coastal work as well as working with local authorities and other partners to help bring in more funding.

The Environment Agency is looking for a conservation member who is passionate about the environment.

This is particularly relevant to this committee as the Ouse Washes, which covers parts of Fenland, is one of the most important sites for conservation in Europe, as well as being a statutory flood reservoir.

The committee looks for a good balance of interests across its membership. Applications from people with experience of land drainage, farming or knowledge of the water industry would also be welcome.

The new members will have a contact within the Environment Agency who they can work closely with to ensure they have a good understanding of the issues and discussions taking place at committees and who will be happy to answer any queries.

If you are interested contact Amy Inman on 01733 464389 or amy.inman@environment-agency.gov.uk to find out more or request an application pack.

Closing date for applications is Friday, May 8, with interviews taking place in June.
