Strategic Flood Risk Assessment

A Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) was created in 2019 with the purpose of supporting the production of the Submission Version of the District Council's Site Allocations Plan (SAP). This version of the Plan is now not being proceeded with, and a new version of the SFRA will accompany the new Preferred Options version of the Site Allocations Plan when this is published for consultation in autumn 2020.
