Greater Nottingham Strategic Flood Risk Assessment Addendum
AECOM were commissioned by Nottingham City and neighbouring Local Authorities to undertake a Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) Addendum for the Greater Nottingham area. This Addendum refreshes earlier work set out in the Greater Nottingham Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (GNSFRA) 2010 and the River Leen and Day Brook Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (RLDBSFRA) 2008.
The Addendum Report has not been written to supersede the existing Greater Nottingham and River Leen and Daybrook SFRA documents, but to improve the quality of information available to highlight development constraints and opportunities for environmental enhancement. The three documents, comprising the GNSFRA 2010, River Leen and Daybrook SFRA and this SFRA Addendum (2017), meet the requirements of the National Planning Policy Framework.
Please note the SFRA addendum includes new GIS based SFRA mapping that includes data which supersedes the earlier GNSFRA mapping. The GIS based mapping includes data on:
- Fluvial sources
- Groundwater sources
- Hydrology and
- Pluvial sources
