Draft Flood Risk Supplementary Planning Document

How to use this Supplementary Planning Document

The consideration of flood risk is an inherently complex and difficult issue. This Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) has been structured to assist applicants and the public in understanding how the Council will implement planning policies and consider flood risk as part of the planning application process. Part 1 of this document sets out the context and flood risk policies that guide development in Elmbridge. Part 2 of the document is designed to assist applicants in preparing a Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) to accompany a planning application and Figure 1 outlines this process.
