Drought Plan Consultation

Welcome to our consultation on our new draft Drought Plan, which we expect will be published in 2022. This is your opportunity to give your views on our plans to tackle droughts. Your feedback will help us evaluate our plans and identify any areas we need to develop further.

How to have your say

When you’re ready to share your views, you can use our online feedback to form to have your say. The deadline for responses is 2 August 2021. We’ll publish a summary of the feedback and how we’ve taken it on board in September 2021.
