What is a Flood Risk Assessment?

A Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) is a technical report that reviews the flood risk to a site.

A flood risk assessment is required to demonstrate:

Assessing the flood risk of a site is very important as it could mean including sufficient flood mitigation/prevention measures within the plans. Failure to do this could result in costly delays later down the line or development having to be halted altogether.

  • There is little or no flood risk to a proposed development site.

  • The flood risk to areas outside of a site is not increased because of developing the site.

  • Appropriate flood mitigation measures are provided where required.

Why do I need a Flood Risk Assessment?

You need to understand the potential risk of flooding if you are designing or developing a new site. That’s why all major developments and any development in areas of high flood risk need a flood risk assessment. If a site sits within a known flood zone, as a property developer, planner or architect, you’ll need to think about how it might affect the community as well.
