Charnwood Borough Council commissioned a review and update of the 2008 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment to produce the 2014 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA). This uses the best available information available to update the previous SFRA and provide appropriate supporting evidence for the Charnwood Borough Local Plan. The 2014 SFRA will also be used to inform Development Management decisions.

Flood Risk - Sequential Test
Charnwood Borough Council has used information from its 2014 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment to carry out a flood risk sequential test. The purpose of such testing is to steer development to areas with the lowest probability of flooding to ensure that potential flood risk to people and property is avoided where possible. The sequential test document is available below:
