The public have another two months to comment on plans by Central Beds Council to tackle flooding black spots in the district.
A new draft Local Flood Risk Management Strategy sets out how the authority intends to manage the various types of flood risk.
The blueprint looks at how the council can work with others to tackle flooding.
Councillor Brian Spurr, spokesman for sustainable communities, said: “Public consultation on the strategy gives you the chance to give your view on what the strategy should cover and suggest ways in which the council and its partners could help to protect the public from flooding.”
Specific actions aimed at flood prevention in the strategy include investigating the source of blockages, such as clogged-up culverts, as well as reviewing whether new byelaws are needed to ensure that landowners properly manage any stretches of watercourse they have responsibility for.
The strategy also contains details of planned works, which include surface water management assessments planned to take place in towns and villages including Leighton Buzzard.

All responses must be submitted by October 23.
