What is a flood risk assessment?

Flood risk is a material planning consideration and it is the applicant's responsibility to assess and mitigate that risk.

To find out whether land is within a flood risk zone you can search on the Environment Agency's flood map, or call them on 08708 506 506.

Legislation requires that Cheltenham borough council consults the Environment Agency in relation to certain planning applications, particularly those on land within flood risk zones.
