Congleton Strategic Flood Risk Assessment
JBA Consulting were commissioned by the former Congleton Borough Council to undertake the Congleton Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) in September 2007. The SFRA is a planning tool that enables the Council to select and implement sustainable development away from the vulnerable flood risk areas. The assessment focuses on allocated and potential development sites already identified within the district but also sets out the procedure to be followed when assessing additional sites in the future. The SFRA will assist the Council to make the spatial planning decisions required to inform the Local Development Framework.
