The London Flood Emergency Plan

The London Resilience Partnership, a coalition of key agencies (Government, City of London…), prepared the “London Flood Response Strategic Plan”. The objective is to “ensure a coordinated response to a flood, which will protect life and well-being with the mitigation of property and environmental damage as a strong supporting objective”.

The primary focus is on both tidal flooding from the River Thames and on fluvial flooding from tributaries that flow into the River Thames in London. The procedures also apply to surface water flooding resulting from excessive rainfall.
