Jonathan joined Anglian Water in 2012 and leads their work on flood risk management. He works closely with all flood risk management authorities across the Anglian region to help deliver the National and Local Flood Risk Management Strategies, surface water management plans and local flood investigations. Through working in partnership with risk management authorities, partners are able to align investment opportunities, jointly deliver capital and maintenance flood risk management works, and help reduce the risk of flooding to local communities.
Jonathan has been actively involved in Anglian Water’s PR19 Business Plan submission, focusing of delivering enhanced resilience through improved water recycling infrastructure. This includes substantive investment plans to adapt to the risks of climate change and increased housing growth which involve improved management of surface water, as well as managing flood risk to critical assets from all sources.
Jonathan has also played an active role in shaping national SuDS policy and guidance by working with Water UK, Defra, DCLG, local authorities and housebuilders, both in his current role with Anglian Water and in his previous role at CIRIA.
Jonathan is an Environment Agency Appointee to the Anglian Northern Regional Flood and Coastal Committee.
