The first response to Making space for water, the cross-Government flood and coastal erosion risk management strategy, sets out what we plan to do. A detailed programme of work has been developed to take this forward.

The programme is already addressing some of the issues highlighted by recent events, but we will consider whether there are any further implications, including changes to our long-term aims and objectives, following the completion of the lessons learned exercise.
