Draft Flood Risk Supplementary Planning Document

What are the implications of flood risk for development?

Development is restricted depending on which Flood Zone it is located within and if it is affected by other sources of flooding.

Wherever possible development will be directed away from areas of flood risk. However, where development does take place the Council needs to ensure that it is safe, does not increase the risk of flooding elsewhere and where possible reduces risk overall. This must be demonstrated within an FRA.
