Bristol Avon Flood Strategy consultation
We sought feedback from the local community and stakeholder groups on the Bristol Avon Flood Strategy. We received 576 responses to the consultation which took place between 5 October 2020 and 20 December 2020.
The first three weeks of the consultation were dedicated to contacting those who are currently at risk of flooding - this was done directly via mail so that they had an early opportunity to comment and organise to speak to us if they wished to. This included both businesses and residents who received an information booklet and survey and a covering letter offering conversations. This included those impacted further downstream and upstream in neighbouring authorities. The consultation was then opened up more widely from 26 October 2020.
The focus of both parts of the consultation was to secure responses from those in areas most impacted. Whilst views from across the city and from neighbouring authorities were welcome, promotion was specifically targeted at the areas most impacted.
