Strategic flood risk assessment

December 2015

Selby District Council has completed the Level 1 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment which will be followed shortly by a Level 2 Assessment.

Please Note

The Environment Agency is continuously monitoring and updating flood risk data, so reference should always be made to the latest published Flood Maps. Please always visit the environment agency website for more information.

When reading the SFRA and guide to Sequential Testing for Planning Applications, the Flood Risk SPD Draft is currently not adopted and cannot be given any weighting. Please discuss the current Flood Risk Sequential Test with Development Management.

Level 1 Final Report

Selby District Council has completed both Level 1 and Level 2 Strategic Flood Risk Assessments.

Level 1 Final Report

The Level 1 Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) which was first published in November 2007 has been updated to take account of more recent data released by the Environment Agency regarding Selby Dam and its tributaries, and to reflect the Councils emerging Core Strategy.

Please note - since the publication of the Level 1 report, the Environment Agency has issued a revised Flood Map for the River Ouse and the River Wharfe. The Environment Agency is continuously monitoring and upating flood risk data, so reference should always be made to the latest published Flood Map. Please visit the environment agency website for more information".

Level 2 SFRA - Final 'Living Document'

The flood risk information in the Level 1 SFRA has been used to undertake a PPS25 Sequential test and a Level 2 SFRA.

The purpose of the Sequential Test - pdf is to steer development to areas at lowest probability of flooding. Since the scale of growth required exceeds the amount of low flood risk land available, particularly in Selby, this means accommodating some development in higher flood risk areas, including a number of 'strategic development sites'.

The Level 2 SFRA - doc 6Mb provides detailed information on specific flood risk for each of the strategic development sites, including recommendations for managing and mitigating the risk.

Addendum to Level 2 SFRA and PPS25 Sequential Test

Following publication of the revised flood maps the council has reviewed the PPS25 Sequential Test previously undertaken as part of the Level 2 SFRA in order to test the findings in the light of the new data. The results are published as a seperate addendum to the PPS25 Sequential Test.

In view of the fact that a much larger area of land at the proposed Cross Hills Lane Strategic Development Site is now within Flood Zone 3 (high flood risk) the Level 2 SFRA for this site has also been reviewed. This is published as a seperate addendum to the Level 2 SFRA.
