This guide provides practical help to lead local flood authorities (LLFAs), risk management authorities (RMAs), and other authorities with responsibilities, for managing local flood risk. It is relevant to practitioners in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland.

This guide can be used at several stages of managing local flood risk including:
1. Building engagement and awareness.
2. The preparation of a local flood risk management strategy (LFRMS) or a surface water management plan (SWMP).
3. Recovery after an event.
4. When any LFRM project or scheme is being planned.
5. When a new development is planned that might influence flood risk.
6. Partnership working situations (eg SWMP) to provide commonality and fairness of approach.
7. Benchmarking activities.
