Draft Flood Risk Supplementary Planning Document

How will this guidance help?

Specifically, the guidance will help applicants to:

  • Determine if an FRA is required;
  • Consider whether the proposed development is likely to be appropriate;
  • Understand how flood risk is dealt with as part of the planning process;
  • Submit a valid planning application;
  • Determine if any other consents are required;
  • Access the various pre-application services available;
  • Outline which organisations the Council will consult with;
  • Complete the FRA proforma (Appendix 2) and prepare a FRA that is suitable to the scale, nature and type of development proposed as well as the type and degree of flood risk and contains sufficient information to support decision making.
