FD2712 Internal Drainage Boards: Research into the factors affecting IDB board membership and their impact on board governance
The research project investigates factors affecting Internal Drainage Board (IDB) board membership and their impact on governance. The research involved a document review and scoping interviews, an online survey of all IDBs and qualitative interviews with 15 purposively sampled 'case study' IDBs. The research details the issues and successes for IDBs to establish and maintain a full spectrum of board membership, particularly local authorities’ appointed members and their role on the board.
