Strategic Flood Risk Assessment
District studies on all sources of flood risk.
Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) - March 2020
This provides an up to date overview of flood risks across the District from all sources and links to plans and strategies for managing risk. It also maps historic events, flood defences and modelling of the impact of climate change. Flood Risk mapping will be critical to the allocation and testing of cumulative flood impact of development in the local plan review. The SFRA also provides technical advice for flood risk assessments for planning applications and links to current and emerging guidance on sustainable drainage.
A copy of the assessment, a brief summary of its findings and a selection of maps are available below. Other maps referred to within the report can be provided on request by contacting the Planning Policy Team.
