Under the Flood and Water Management Act, Denbighshire County Council as the Lead Local Flood Authority has developed a strategy to show how it will provide a coordinated, resourced and comprehensive approach to managing flood risk in the future.
Cabinet Lead Member for Environment, Councillor David Smith, said: "Unfortunately, we in Denbighshire have experienced unprecedented weather events that have led to significant flooding in communities across the County in the last 18 months.
"I have seen first hand the devastation this has caused to many households and that is why it is important that we take advantage of the opportunity to assess where flooding is possible and have a strategy in place to manage those risks as much as possible so I would urge people to get involved and have their say."
The draft strategy and supporting documents can be found on www.denbighshire.gov.uk/consultations and hard copies of the Strategy are available at libraries in Rhyl, Rhuddlan, Prestatyn, St Asaph, Corwen and Llangollen. Copies can also be viewed at the Council's offices at Caledfryn in Denbigh and County Hall in Ruthin.
The consultation runs until 4th April.
