Vision, Mission and Values

Vision

Our vision is to make each Member Board’s Drainage District and watershed catchment area a safer place to live, work, learn, grow and have fun; as a model of sustainable living in a high flood risk area.

Mission

We aim to:

  • Reduce the risk to people, property, infrastructure and the natural environment by providing and maintaining technically, environmentally and economically sustainable flood and coastal defences within our coastal zones and hydraulic sub catchment areas.
  • Become the local delivery partner of choice for all flood and coastal erosion risk management services in our coastal zones and hydraulic sub catchments, by working closely with other Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Authorities, partners and stakeholders.
  • Enable and facilitate land use for residential, commercial, recreational and environmental purposes by guiding and regulating activities that would otherwise increase flood or coastal erosion risk.
  • Nurture, enhance and maintain the natural habitats and species which exist in and alongside watercourses and other flood and coastal erosion risk management infrastructure.

Values

  • It is important to explicitly define the core principles and values from which we develop our culture, our brand, and our business strategies.
  • We will endeavour to live by our ten commandments with prudence (wisdom, foresight, reason, knowledge and judgement), justice (fairness and impartiality), temperance (self-control, restraint, moderation and humility) and courage (fortitude, forbearance, strength, endurance and the ability to confront fear, uncertainty and intimidation).
  • This is our code that we hope defines the very essence of who we are and how we aspire to operate as a group.
