Local Plan Review Evidence

Flood Risk

Evidence we've gathered relating to flood risk in Swale for the local plan review.

Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (March 2020)

Level 1 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) has been completed for Swale Borough Council by JBA Consulting (March 2020). The SFRA will be used to:

* inform the plan-making process, in particular the choice of allocations, following the sequential approach

* assist Development Management decisions

* assist Developers in the preparation of Flood Risk Assessments

* help prioritise and target improvements to flood defences and prepare for flood emergencies

The draft SFRA was reported to the Local Plan Panel on 27th November 2019.

Following the panel meeting, we have published the Strategic Flood Risk Assessment report and appendices on our website.
