South Cumbria Catchment Management Group

The Cumbria Strategic Floods Partnership (CSFP) was established following the devastating floods of December 2015. South Cumbria Rivers Trust were then funded to run Catchment Management Groups. Funding for this ceased in June 2019, however, this page hosts the progress made during this time. Our catchment partnership (Becks to Bay) will continue to deliver against a flood and drought theme, alongside other multiple objectives.

The Catchment Management Groups were hosted by the three rivers trusts in Cumbria and comprised a range of responsible organisations and community groups that deliver flood risk management works.

Across South Cumbria the Catchment Management Groups have delivered and developed a number of projects and actions to help increase flood resilience.

Further information is also hosted on the North West Flood Hub, including guidance on resilience, how to plan and prepare for a flood and types of flood schemes.
