Strategic Flood Risk Assessment

In November 2007, the Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) for the Royal Borough was approved by the Council's Cabinet for development control purposes, and to inform the Local Development Framework. The SFRA brings together recommendations for drainage, emergency planning and development control and sets out recommendations for the development of policy within the Local Development Framework and Borough Local Plan. This has been updated and the 2007 document has now been superseded by a revised SFRA Level 1 and Increased Scope and Sequential Testing of Sites, both published in January 2014.

The SFRA includes a series of maps which define areas of flooding according to risk and indicate the Borough's historic flooding, watercourses and topography. A flood hazard map is also included which measures depth and velocity of flooding across the Borough.

As part of the Borough Local Plan Preferred Options consultation, both the SFRA Level 1 and the SFRA Increased Scope and Sequential Testing of Sites (published in January 2014) can be viewed from 24 January under the supporting documents tab on the Online Consultation Portal. The preferred options consultation runs until 7 March 2014.
