who we help

The LSIDB &

local authorities / councils

In the face of increasing climate uncertainty, LSIDB and local councils work in partnership to shape a sustainable future through responsible water management practices.

LSIDB provides expertise in flood risk assessments, drainage design consultations and environmental impact assessments, offering invaluable support for often complex decision-making. Through our government-funded projects, councils can achieve value-for-money when managing flood risks and improving water quality.

We also offer competitively-priced services, including specialist equipment and resources, to authorities seeking to outsource or subcontract aspects of drainage and watercourse maintenance for their adopted infrastructure.

As a public body, eight Local Authorities are represented on the LSIDB Board by 15 appointed councillors.
