England is now subject to National lockdown: Stay at Home restrictions. You must stay at home.
The PUSH SFRA 2016 Update has delivered revised reporting, mapping and guidance notes to replace the document “Partnership for Urban South Hampshire Strategic Flood Risk Assessment Final Report, December 2007”. The update was undertaken on behalf of PUSH by the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership and delivered in June 2016.
Since the publication of the previous PUSH SFRA there have been a number of changes to planning guidance and new legislation that includes the Flood and Water Management Act (2010). National planning policy is now defined in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the supporting Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG).
The Environment Agency’s modelling of flood risk has also been improved. This has led to some updates to the present-day maps of flood risk which the PUSH SFRA doesn’t take into account. These changes may supersede some areas displayed in the hazard mapping and climate change mapping layers. The Council is looking to update the SFRA in the future as part of its work on the new Local Plan in order to take these changes into account.
This Level 1 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) is a strategic document which assesses and maps all forms of flood risk from tidal, river, groundwater, surface water and sewer sources, taking into account future climate change predictions. The package of work provides appropriate supporting evidence for The PUSH Spatial Strategy review in addition to Local Plans being developed by the local partner authorities.
