The purpose of the SFRA is to assess and map all forms of flood risk from groundwater, surfacewater, sewer and river sources, taking into account future climate change predictions, and use this as an evidence base to locate future development primarily in low flood risk areas.
The outputs from the SFRA will help the Council to prepare sustainable policies for the long-term management of flood risk and improve existing emergency planning procedures.
Level 1 SFRA 2013
Mouchel have prepared a new Level 1 SFRA which replaces the reports prepared by Halcrow on behalf of local authorities in Coventry & Warwickshire Authorities in 2007/08. This SFRA updates the flood map areas, the potential impacts of climate change on flooding and takes account of surface water flooding, amongst other things.
The SFRA contains maps that display how climate change may affect the following Flood Zones over a period of 50-100 years:
Please note that these maps refer to the previous Level 1 SFRA. They will be updated shortly.
County-wide maps can be found on Warwickshire County Council's website that were prepared for the previous SFRA Level 1 assessment in 2008.
