North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb is calling for local voices to be heard in planned review of flood defences.
The setting up of a National Resilience Review was announced by Environment Secretary Elizabeth Truss before Christmas.
The review will examine the best way to cope with flooding risks in the future.
Mr Lamb has asked the government to clarify the timetable for the review and how communities and councils can have their say.
He said: 'As the MP for a constituency with a near 50 mile stretch of coastline, extensive inland waterways and significant areas of low-lying land I believe it is critically important that the government is fully focused on the need to protect communities from the risk of flooding.
'It's vital that people living in places like North Norfolk can make their voices heard.'
