Strategic flood risk assessment

The principle of Strategic Flood Risk Management is to avoid locating new development in areas of flood risk. Directing all new development away from areas of flood risk in existing communities is not always a viable or sustainable option and there will be a need to ensure that development adapts to the changing climate.
