Strategic flood risk

The Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) is supporting evidence to the Local Development Framework. It has been carried out to:

  •  Collate information on all known sources of flooding, including river, surface water (local drainage), sewers and groundwater, that may affect existing and/or future development within the district; 
  •   Delineate areas that have a ‘low’, ‘medium’ or ‘high’ probability of flooding within the district, defined in accordance with Planning Policy Statement 25 (PPS25), and to map these; 
  •   Inform the development of Council policy on managing flood risk and the allocation of land for future development; 
  •  Recommend that within flood affected areas, appropriate land uses (in accordance with the PPS25 Sequential Test) that will not unduly place people or property at risk of flooding; 
  • Recommend, where flood risk has been identified as a potential constraint to future development, possible flood mitigation solutions that may be integrated into the design (by the developer) to minimise the risk to property and life should a flood occur (in accordance with the PPS25 Exception Test).
