Risk management is a strategic tool and an essential part of effective and efficient management and planning.

Fylde Borough Council delivers a diverse range of services that provide a significant potential for personal injury and loss or damage. Risk management allows us to reduce that potential and in respect of strategic risk it will allow us to effectively manage the barriers to achieving the Council’s objectives.

The Council will seek to embed risk management into its culture, processes and structure to ensure that opportunities are maximised. The council will seek to encourage managers to identify, understand and manage risks.
