The Environmental Agency is likely to reduce staff numbers from the previous forecast of around 11,250 at the end of March 2014 to around 9,700 by October 2014. They do not yet know how and where specific staff numbers will be affected as this is currently being considered and detailed proposals will be announced in due course.
