Development plans and flood risk

Flood risk assessment plays a part in making the local plan.

The Strategic Flood Risk Assessment 2007 is used alongside the Environment Agency information on flood risk.

Please refer to the Environment Agency for the most up to date information on flood risk and flood zones.

You need to consider flood risk if you are making a planning application.

Further details can be found on the development management flood risk page.

Information on flood risk and how to prepare for and manage it can be found on our flooding information web page and the Environment Agency’s website.
