Charnwood Level 1 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment 2018

Our Customer Service Centre on Southfield Road is now open for essential enquiries by appointment only. Please be aware that it is mandatory for face coverings to be worn on the premises. More information, including how to make an appointment, can be found in this news story.

We have commissioned a review of the 2014 Charnwood Strategic Flood Risk Assessment to inform the preparation of the new Local Plan to 2036.

Paragraph 155, of the National Planning Policy Framework, notes that “inappropriate development in areas at risk of flooding should be avoided by directing development away from areas at highest risk”. Local authorities are therefore required to prepare a Strategic Flood Risk Assessment to inform strategic policies and to manage flood risk from all sources.

The Charnwood Strategic Flood Risk Assessment 2018 is available to view here:

The main document is also supported by a number of maps which can be viewed in the Appendices below:

Appendix A: GEO PDF Flood Risk Mapping

The interactive maps will only function fully with Adobe Acrobat Reader, if you are unable to turn on the map layers and wish to do so, please contact us for assistance on 01509 634929 (telephone) or by email at

Alternatively, there are PDF versions available to download below under the section ‘Flood Zone Maps’ which show the flood zones for each grid.
