     information
     Implement the legislative changes proposed in Environment

     findings as appropriate
     Implement a public information campaign which draws on a
     single definitive set of flood prevention and mitigation advice for
60
     householders and businesses, and which can be used by media
     and the authorities locally and nationally
     Environment Agency to work with local responders to raise
     awareness in flood risk areas and identify a range of
61
     mechanisms to warn the public, particularly the vulnerable, in
     response to flooding

     Flood risk should be made part of the mandatory seach
63   requirements when people buy property, and should form part of
     Home Information Packs

     Authorities, to enhance flood warnings before flooding and to
64
     provide information and assess welfare needs ince flooding has

     the production of a sliding scale of options for greater
65
     personalisation of public warning information, including costs,
     benefits and feasibility
     Local Authority contact centres should take the lead whendealing
66   with general enquiries from the public during and after major
     flooding, redirecting calls to other organisations whe appropriate
     Cabinet Office should provide advice to ensure all LRFs have
67   effective and linked websites providing public information before,
     during and after
     Council leaders and Chief Executives should play a prominent
     role in public reassurance and advice through the local media
68
     during a flooding emergency, as part of a coordinated effort
     overseen by Gold commanders
     The public should make up a flood kit - including personal
     documents, insurance policy, emergency contact numbers

     wipes or antibacterial gel, first aid kit and blankets

     communities to be better prepared and more self-reliant during
70
     emergencies, allowing authorities to focus on those areas and
     people in greatest need
     Department of Health and relevant bodies should develop a
     single set of flood-related health advice for householders and
71
     businesses which should be used by all organisations nationally
     and locally and made available through a wide range of sources
     Local response and recovery coordinating groups should ensure
     that health and wellbeing support is readily available to those
72
     affected by flooding based on the advice developed by the
     Department of Health
     The Government, the Association of British Insurers and other
     relevant organisations should work together to explore any
73   technological or process improvements that can be made to
     speed up the drying out and stabilising process of building
     recovery after a flood
     Monitoring of the impact of flooding on the health wellbeing of
     people, and actions to mitigate and manage the effects, should
74
     form a systematic part of the work of Recovering Coordinating
     Groups
     For emergencies spanning more than a single Local Authority
75   area, Government Offices should ensure coherence and
     coordination between recovery operations
     Coordinate a systematic programme of community engagement
76
     during recovery
     National and Local Recovery Coordinating Groups should be
     established from the outset of major emergencies and in due
77
     course there should be formal handover from the crisis
     machinery
     Aims and objectives for the recovery phase should be agreed at
     the outset by the RCG to provide focus and enable rderly
78
     transition into mainstream programmes when multi-agency
     coordination of recover is no longer required
     GOWM in conjunction with LGA to develop arrangements to
79   provide advice and support from experienced organisations to
     areas dealing with recovery
     Guidance to be updated to reflect new arrangements for
80
     recovery and SRF to plan, train and exercise on this basis
     Should be an agreed framework, including definitions and
81
     timescales, for local-central recovery reporting
     Government should publish monthly summaries of the progress
82   of the recovery phase, following an event, including numbers of
     households still displaced
     Continue to make arrangements to bear the cost of recovery for
83   all but the most exceptional emergencies, and should revisit their
     reserves and insurance arrangements
     Should be pre-planned rather ad-hoc arrangements to contribute
84   towards the financial burden of recovery from exceptional
     emergencies, on a formula basis
     Local RCGs should make early recommendations to elected
85   local authority members about longer-term regeneration and
     economic development opportunities
     Government to publish and action plan to implement the
     recommendations of this Review, with a Director of Defra
86
     overseeing the programme of delivery and issuing regular
     progress updates
     Government to establish a Cabinet Committee with a remit to
87   improve the country's ability to deal with flooding and implement
     the recommendations of this Review
     Establish a National Resilience Forum to facilitate national level
88
     multi-agency planning for flooding and other emergencies
     The EFRA Select Committee to review the country's readiness
     for dealing with flooding emergencies and produce an
89
     assessment of progress in implementation of the Review's
     recommendations after 12 months
     Upper tier local authorities should establish Oversight and
     Scrutiny Committees to review work by public sector bodies and
90   essential service providers in order to manage flood risk,
     underpinned by a legal requirement to cooperate and share
     information
     Each Oversight and Scrutiny Committee should prepare an
     annual summary of actions taken locally and manage flood risk
91   and implement this Review, and these reports should be made
     public and reviewed by Government Offices and Environment
     Agency
     SRF should evaluate and share lessons from both the response
92   and recovery phases to inform their planning for future
     emergencies

     by Local Authorities, to enhance flood warnings before
64
     flooding and to provide information and assess welfare
     needs ince flooding has receded
     Upper tier local authorities should be lead responders in
     relation to multi-agency planning for severe weather
41   emergencies at the local level and for triggering multi-
     agency arrangements in response to severe weather
     warnings and local impact assessments

     Upper tier local authorities should establish Oversight
     and Scrutiny Committees to review work by public
90   sector bodies and essential service providers in order to
     manage flood risk, underpinned by a legal requirement
     to cooperate and share information

     Each Oversight and Scrutiny Committee should prepare
     an annual summary of actions taken locally and
91   manage flood risk and implement this Review, and
     these reports should be made public and reviewed by
     Government Offices and Environment Agency

     should be established from the outset of major
77
     emergencies and in due course there should be formal
     handover from the crisis machinery
     Aims and objectives for the recovery phase should be
     agreed at the outset by the RCG to provide focus and

     when multi-agency coordination of recover is no longer
     required
     Should be an agreed framework, including definitions
