Webinar recording: Flood risk assessments for planning applications

Planning for flood risk in England is underpinned by a sequential, risk-risk based approach to development. This must be informed by up to date evidence that considers all sources of flood risk, including the current and future impacts of climate change.

Flood risk assessments (FRAs) are therefore an important component of the evidence base for planning applications, and are vital for planning officers to make an assessment of the suitability of proposals.

This webinar is aimed at planning and flood risk officers engaging with the development management function of local planning authorities.
