Join the Yorkshire Regional Flood and Coastal Committee

8th September 2022 News

Interested in Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management and Environmental aspects of flood risk management?

Apply to join the Yorkshire Regional Flood and Coastal Committee as an Independent Member.

The Environment Agency (EA) is looking to appoint three new Independent Members to join the Yorkshire Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (YRFCC). The Committee’s remit covers a diverse geography with over five million residents and a region that makes a substantial contribution to the national economy. At the same time, it is vulnerable to the risk of flooding from many sources – rivers, surface water, tidal, groundwater – and includes some of Europe’s fastest eroding coastline. The impact of our changing climate is evident across the region with rising sea levels, increased storm frequency, and changing wave patterns, meaning that managing coastal change will become an ever-increasing and important challenge.

To request an application pack and to discuss the advertised vacancies or the role of YRFCC, please contact the Committee Secretary, Amer Bhatti at or telephone 07786523779.
