A new Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk
Management (FCERM) staffing structure is required after a Dorset
Council change of direction with shared partnership line
Formation of an independent BCP Centre of Excellence is recommended, building on existing reputation and allowing delivery of collaborative working opportunities.
The business model changes to FCERM over the last couple of years have demonstrated the ability to deliver more projects, increase income, attract quality staff and reduce reliance on consultancy support. Not only does this direction achieve more on the ground, it will result in longer term savings.
