Flood risk assessment

How to find out if a property is in a flood risk area

Strategic Flood Risk Assessment 2018

We’re in a group of Norfolk local planning authorities who’ve commissioned a new Level 1 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA). The group also includes:

  • Broadland District Council
  • Great Yarmouth Borough Council
  • North Norfolk District Council
  • Norwich City Council
  • South Norfolk Council
  • The Broads Authority

What is the SFRA?

The SFRA looks at the risk of flooding in the borough, and helps to inform planning decisions. It:

  • looks at the extent and nature of flood risk from all sources of flooding, now, and in the future
  • takes into account the effects of climate change and its implications for land use planning

We'll use the results of the SFRA to direct development away from areas at greatest risk of flooding when preparing the Local Development Plan. The study sets out the flood risk constraints to help inform the:

The SFRA has been produced in collaboration with the Environment Agency. It updates the existing EA Flood maps for Planning.

The SFRA also projects flood risk forward into the future. It takes into account predicted sea level rise and increased annual rainfall as a result of climate change.

The SFRA is primarily a tool to inform the planning of future development such as new housing, schools and businesses. To make sure that these developments remain safe throughout their entire life, we must plan for how flood risk will be in the future, not just how it is now.

Please read the SFRA in conjunction with the:

  • relevant technical appendices
  • explanatory text contained in Appendix D

Applicants proposing development within breach areas (fluvial and tidal) may need to request detailed information for their site specific flood risk assessment from the Environment Agency.

To locate your area of interest, please first view the Index Map. Please note the tile number, and then select this number map from the table below.

The interactive maps contained in this appendix detail flood risk from all sources including the functional floodplain (Flood Zone 3b) and climate change mapping.

Please note - we recommend you open the maps using Internet Explorer, or download the maps and view them using Adobe Reader.
