Crewe and Nantwich Strategic Flood Risk Assessment

Crewe Flood Risk MapIn November 2006 JBA Consulting was commissioned by the former Crewe and Nantwich Borough Council, to undertake the Crewe and Nantwich Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA). The SFRA is prepared in accordance with Planning Policy Statement 25: Development and Flood Risk. The SFRA is a planning tool that enables the Council to select and implement sustainable development away from vulnerable flood risk areas. The assessment focuses on allocated and potential development sites already identified but also sets out the procedure to be followed in when assessing additional sites in the future. The SFRA will assist the Council to make the spatial planning decisions required to inform their Local Development Framework.
