Flood Risk and Development

Strategic Flood Risk Assessments (SFRAs)

Strategic Flood Risk Assessments (SFRAs) have been undertaken by each of the District Councils to help inform the planning process. They provide a detailed and robust assessment of flooding, and the implications that this may have for land use planning. All of these documents are available via the links on this page.

The studies identify the sources of flooding and provide recommendations for the most suitable locations for development with regard to the level of risk. It also identifies any actions that need to be taken to support development, particularly in relation to infrastructure upgrades.
