Strategic Flood Risk Assessment

Strategic Flood Risk Assessments (SFRAs) are studies carried out by one or more local planning authorities to assess the risk to an area from flooding from all sources, now and in the future. An SFRA takes into account the impacts of climate change and assesses the impact that land use changes and development in the area will have on flood risk. They are background evidence-based documents which inform the Local Development Framework.
